プロジェクト概要

The Bluesource Big Six Improved Forest Management Project is located on approximately 22,000 acres of northern hardwood and softwood forest located in the township of Big Six in Somerset County, Maine. It is bordered on the west by the Saint John River, which serves as the Canadian-U.S. border in this location. The property has been under forest management for over 100 years and serves as a critical habitat and migration corridor for the threatened Canada Lynx. The project was implemented by Big Six Land and Timber Company (Project Proponent) and Blue Source, LLC, a carbon credit project developer.
The project activity is improved forest management (IFM), with Big Six’s forest management practices representing a significant improvement in the carbon storage and conservation value versus higher return, more aggressive management regimes of industrial private lands in the region. Those regimes are characterized by shorter, even-aged rotations. Management decisions of the forest in the project scenario focus on sustainable merchantable timber and non-timber forest products, natural forest growth, and maintenance harvests for essential activities, recreation, wildlife habitat, and forest health. The project ensures long-term sustainable management of the forests, which could otherwise undergo significant commercial timber harvesting.
