With emissions regulations on the horizon in the U.S., there is rising interest in the carbon sequestration and storage functions of urban trees. How does this unique function present a potential funding opportunity for municipal or nonprofit organizations? Carbon markets deal in the buying and selling of credits for emissions of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide. Trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store the carbon in their trunks, branches, leaves, and roots. Local community groups engaged in restoring urban tree canopy may have a valuable role to play in carbon markets by developing or participating in mitigation and offset projects.
