CFT's Smart Forest Action Plan
Our Smart Forests

Our Smart Forest Action Plan

When you invest in a Smart Forest, we keep you informed on its progress - from site selection to planting to ongoing maintenance and carbon and biodiversity footprint impact. CFT manages the forest landscape from the moment you buy your forest.

Start making a difference now—and far into the future

Each Smart Forest has a ‘planting prescription'. This is the unique mix of species that's right for the local climate, soil conditions, drainage, and land history. This optimal habitat maximizes the positive impacts the forest will make, including carbon sequestration, oxygen production and water absorption.
