    From California ReLeaf: Congratulations to the City of Santa Monica and Walt Warriner Santa Monica’s Community Forester.

    The City of Santa Monica GHG Tree Planting Project will add 1,000 trees to the City’s urban forest and quantify stored carbon in existing trees.

    The project goal is to record tree growth data for the purpose of measuring carbon sequestration by publicly-owned trees. And the City will quantify carbon stored in trees already planted using the U.S. Forest Service’s new Tree Carbon Calculator. The Project is in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service’s Center for Urban Forest Research (CUFR).

    Their submission was accepted as the Climate Action Reserve’s (CAR) first urban forest project!  There is a tremendous opportunity to learn from Walt as the project goes through verification and begins quantifying carbon stored in trees already planted using the new Tree Carbon Calculator.
