Bluesource
Date: 2022-05-02
The Michigan DNR reports the Bluesource/Michigan DNR Big Wild Forest Carbon Project, the first-of-its-kind pilot in the nation that will leverage the carbon storage capacity of trees on state forest lands, is underway.

The pilot project, which covers 109,000 acres of the Pigeon River Country State Forest, will develop a portfolio of carbon offset credits generated from sustainable forest management activities. The Forest is a working forest managed with sustainable timber harvest practices with a focus on the forest enhanced carbon sequestration potential.

Bluesource, Locus Agricultural Solutions
Date: 2022-01-19
Salt Lake City-based environmental services and carbon offset aggregator Bluesource is announcing its Bluesource Regenerative Agriculture Program that provides the agricultural industry with opportunities to gain value from carbon reduction and sequestration practices.

The Bluesource Regenerative Agriculture Program is now underway through two collaborating partnerships on an initial 320,000 acres of U.S. farmland. A $5 million investment by Green Star Royalties Ltd. finances Bluesource's ability to provide upfront payments to farmers enrolling in the CarbonNOW® carbon farming program developed by Locus Agricultural Solutions (Locus AG). Bluesource will be verifying sequestered soil carbon and marketing the associated carbon credits in the voluntary carbon market. It is estimated that this initial project will mitigate over 500,000 metric tons of CO2e per year. Bluesource is currently pre-marketing credits to interested buyers.

It is estimated that 95 pct of cropland across the United States could be eligible to participate in carbon programs less than 5 pct of U.S. farmers participate in carbon farming programs, according to the release.

Regenerative Agriculture is a conservation and rehabilitation approach to promote soil health in food and farming systems.

Michigan Big Wild Forest Carbon (Offsets) Project Touted (Ind. Report)
Michigan DNR, Bluesource
Date: 2022-01-03
In Michigan, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Salt Lake City-headquartered environmental services and carbon finance markets specialist Bluesource are touting their previously announced Bluesource/DNR Big Wild Forest Carbon (Offsets) Project allowing state residents and companies to offset their carbon emissions through the purchase of carbon credits. These credits signify carbon taken out of the atmosphere and stored in trees through photosynthesis.

The project will be conducted on 100,000 acres in The Big Wild of the Pigeon River Country State Forest in the Northern Lower Peninsula. Plots of land have already been measured, but credits will not be issued until May 2022. Bluesource has 76 similar projects covering 3 million acres nationwide and has been effective in helping to generate millions of carbon offsets, according to Bluesource.

Michigan utility DTE has committed to purchase all of the Big Wild Forest Carbon Project carbon credits for the next 10 years at an estimated cost of $10 million as part of its strategy to attain net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. DTE residential customers can voluntarily choose to offset their carbon emissions partially or fully by making payments ranging from $4 to $16 per month.
