Welcome to the second edition of the Redwood Forest Foundation's bi-annual newsletter. This issue will highlight restoration related activities, from our own projects on the Usal Redwood Forest, to events associated with the National Geographic Society's upcoming feature article on the Redwood Transect.

One of RFFI's primary goals is to partially finance its own ambitious restoration plans by supplementing conventional timber revenues with cash derived from other forest products, such as clean water and air, carbon sequestration, fish and wildlife habitat and recreation.

In our last newsletter we examined conservation easements and described RFFI's work with The Conservation Fund to sell an easement on the Usal Forest. This sale will ensure that this 50,000 acre forest remains undeveloped and intact, restored and managed sustainably in perpetuity. RFFI is also working to register and sell Carbon Reserve Tons (CRT), certified under protocols developed by the California Climate Action Registry (CAR). Through employing these kinds of balanced approaches to valuing ALL forest resources, RFFI will be better able to meet our objectives of Environmental integrity, Economic viability and social Equity in the redwood region.
