If your project is suitable, One Tribe has to formally verify your documents with your local Land Registry as part of our onboarding due dilligence. This enables One Tribe to verify the ownership, plot size and legal position before we can proceed further.
One Tribe analysits will measure the plot using high density satellite images and calculate the annual carbon sequestration quantities in metric tonnes of CO2. Using industry standard and peer reviewed science enables One Tribe to accurately measure and forecast the carbon impact of the plot. This process takes several weeks to complete.
Upon approval, One Tribe will issue you a property partner contract. This details the annual carbon offset value of your plot, the payment structure and general terms and conditions are provided. Upon digital signing from both parties, your project will move forward to the ingestion stage. Your project will pass through a detailed survey and a final annual carbon credit allowance will be issued.
Upon approval, One Tribe will issue you a property partner contract. This details the annual carbon offset value of your plot.
Through the One Tribe program , landowners will be able to participate in the voluntary carbon offset market if their land uses practices are verified as meeting established criteria for maintaining or increasing the carbon stock on their property. By maintaining or creating forestlands landowners will be able to provide carbon offsets to consumers and businesses who want to reduce their net contribution to the release of carbon-based greenhouse gases that negatively impact the earth’s atmosphere.
Keeping lands forested is the focus of this program. This is because trees naturally capture carbon as they grow, and they store it for a long time. They also store carbon in the soil through roots, leaf litter and decaying wood. However, trees have a natural lifespan. Young, healthy and vigorous forests capture carbon faster than trees that are old, decadent and loosing height through breakage and blowdown. At some point it will be better to harvest the trees for making long lasting products such as lumber, flooring or cabinets that store the carbon for potentially hundreds of years — providing that new trees replace those that were harvested and the land remains forested. It is also recognized that people and communities living in the forest also live with the threat of wildfires. They must be able to meet firesmart recommendations that involve reducing fire fuels by cleaning up deadfall, thinning and pruning trees, and using tree species that burn less readily than others.
A pilot project is underway to:
We invite you to join us in this exciting opportunity by enrolling your property and the land use plans for it in the pilot project. Your participation will help ensure the program is both practical and applicable to the many forest types across Canada and the United States. You’ll be taking action to help address growing concerns about our climate, while financially benefiting from the sale of carbon offsets.
If you are interested in joining the pilot project please review the requirements in the following application, fill out the information requested about you and your property, and email the application back to us at email@example.com.
Landowners and their properties must meet the following requirements and provide the information listed below when they apply to participate in the pilot project.
At the time of enrolment all owners and any co-owners listed on the deed for the property will be required to sign attestations verifying these requirements are met and the information provided is correct.
It is recommended that landowners enrol all properties they own that they can commit to keeping in forest, whether the lands are currently forested or not. This includes all non-connected parcels of land and lands in other regions or provinces.
