About Us

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 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.

Driven by a strong set of values



Living up to expectations and do what we commit ourselves to do.


Striving for transparency through internal communication and external verification
and providing others with our methodology.


Intentionally doing what is right even when no one is looking.


Always keeping ourselves humble and working toward a collective betterment
for the communities we serve.


Showing belief and understanding the hope we have in doing what is right
for landowners and natural habitats.

“NativState forest carbon revenue will help our family conserve our forest and improve wildlife habitat so future generations will enjoy the beauty and abundance of this land.”

Steve Burke, Landowner
