The S&J Taylor Forest Carbon Project balances conservation of both Saline River bottoms riparian hardwoods and “working” pines in the heart of timber country. Diverse oak, gum, cypress, hickory, and pine forests located in south central Arkansas within the Gulf Coastal Plain ecoregion represent important habitat and provide essential buffers that abate sedimentation and nutrient runoff between development and waterways.
By committing to maintain forest CO2e stocks through certified sustainable management, the project will provide significant climate benefits through carbon sequestration and important co-benefits to the Ouachita watershed, local communities, and improved water resources to downstream neighbors throughout
the Gulf Coast Region.
In the S&J Taylor Forest Carbon Project, large tracts of riparian bottomland hardwoods surround the pristine waters of the Upper Saline River and are essential buffers from runoff to the river and to the habitat of the endemic freshwater Arkansas fat mucket mussels, a threatened indicator species.
“Our family has managed these forests for generations. The NativState forest carbon program will empower the next generation to continue our legacy of stewardship, conservation, and sustainable forest management.”
