Mendocino, California, USA
The Garcia River Forest project is located on California’s North coast in Mendocino County. The 23,780-acre forest has become a model site for demonstrating the important role forests play in addressing climate change. Its ecosystems safeguard habitats for rare and threatened species. Sustainable forest management of Garcia River enables the storage of more than 77,000 tons of carbon emissions annually. Careful, selective logging of its Redwood and Douglas fir timber contributes to the local economy of Mendocino County.
