City Forest Credits (CFC) is a 501(c)(3) national nonprofit carbon registry that seeks to make American cities greener, healthier, and more equitable. We are engaged in the exciting and challenging work of registering trees in cities across the U.S. to produce urban forest carbon credits. We offer two important tools to contribute to local climate action and enrich our communities. We issue verified carbon offsets for urban forest projects, and we certify tree planting projects with reportable health, equity, and environmental impacts.
With rapid urbanization of the country, growth and development of our cities are causing tree loss every year. Public funding for urban forestry is falling far short as cities struggle with pressing human needs, and trees are inequitably distributed across neighborhoods. Since 2015, our work enables nonprofits and government entities that lead tree planting and preservation projects to earn and sell carbon credits in the voluntary carbon market, thus generating a new and much-needed revenue source to support the health and well-being of people and the environment.
