Certification: USA Forestry American Carbon Registry
Three cities in Massachusetts (Holyoke, Westfield and West Springfield) have launched a joint Improved Forest Management project on 17,000 acres of public forestland in central Massachusetts. These cities are challenged financially and are under pressure to generate increased revenue from their forests – this project enables them to do so without resorting to more aggressive timber harvesting. The forest management practices of the Tri-City project provide a critical habitat for many mammals, birds, and plants.
