NASF Submits Comments to USDA on Proposed Rules for Greenhouse Gas Technical Assistance Provider and Third-Party Verifier Program

The National Association of State Foresters (NASF) submitted comments in response to the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service request for public input to support the preparation of proposed regulations intended to implement the Greenhouse Gas Technical Assistance Provider and Third-Party Verifier Program. The purpose of the Program is to facilitate farmer, rancher, and private forest landowner participation in voluntary carbon markets. The program is part of the Growing Climate Solutions Act.

“With increasing activity and interest in voluntary carbon markets, NASF believes forest landowners should have up to date information on the program and details pertaining to how it functions. NASF supports forest landowners participating in voluntary carbon markets when it makes financial sense, and it aligns with active forest management.”
