About Us

Empowering the next generation of forest stewardship.

Mission & Vision

Who We Are

  • The NativState team is a group of dedicated scientists, engineers, foresters and land managers with a history of success in business who recognized a need for a market driven approach to deliver scale and economics to forest conservation. Our objective is to work with landowners to generate revenue by conserving their forests and create the scale necessary to participate in the voluntary carbon market.


NativState is a forest carbon developer committed to conservation and helping our clients craft their land legacy. The mission of NativState is to empower the next generation of forest stewardship. NativState’s forest carbon programs offer small landowners economic options to manage their forest by implementing long term sustainable forest management to generate revenue from carbon credits.


Our projects require no upfront costs to the landowner, are validated and verified with independent carbon registries, and marketed to our network of corporate buyers thereby generating carbon revenue for the landowner. Other benefits include healthier forests, enhanced wildlife habitat, higher timber value, improved water quality and increased property values.

Our Vision

Our vision is a connected landscape where plants, animals, and people thrive. Guided by the principles of trust, transparency, integrity, humility, and optimism, we strive to embody these values in all aspects of our operations and interactions, enduring a brighter and greener future for all.
