Arbonics: Carbon Credit Solutions for Forest Landowners

Arbonics offers landowners the ability to generate income from carbon credits by planting new forests and improving existing forest management. It combines data models with expert guidance for sustainable forestry practices.


Arbonics offers a comprehensive platform that enables landowners to generate income from carbon credits by engaging in sustainable forestry practices. By planting new forests (afforestation) and enhancing the management of existing forests (impact forestry), Arbonics provides landowners with the tools to contribute to environmental sustainability while creating new revenue streams.

Afforestation: Creating New Forests

Arbonics helps landowners convert non-forest land into new forests, a process known as afforestation. This involves identifying optimal areas for planting, selecting suitable tree species, and developing a detailed planting plan. Trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow, making them vital for carbon sequestration. Once the carbon sequestration is measured and verified, landowners can earn carbon credits. These credits can be sold to companies looking to offset their greenhouse gas emissions, providing a significant income source for landowners.

Impact Forestry: Enhancing Existing Forests

For landowners with existing forests, Arbonics offers impact forestry services that enhance forest management to increase biodiversity and carbon sequestration. This includes developing custom management plans that integrate traditional timber harvesting with practices aimed at maximizing environmental benefits. By improving forest health and productivity, landowners can generate additional income from carbon credits alongside their traditional timber revenue.
