Introduction

Thank you for entering this survey for the Climate Action Reserve.

The Climate Action Reserve (“the Reserve”) is a non-profit organization committed to ensuring environmental benefit, integrity and transparency in greenhouse gas emissions inventory and reduction accounting. To date, we have issued more than 1.7 million offsets for forestry project and have more than 150 forest project offset projects in our system.

We are considering potential changes to our requirements that would reduce a landowner’s contribution to our insurance pool. We are conducting a survey of forest owners throughout the United States to gather information about how forest property is capitalized, which will help us determine if a proposed change is beneficial.

This survey is entirely anonymous and confidential. The information obtained will not be published and will only be used for internal purposes to help inform future revisions to our program requirements. We may publish an aggregate summary of the results to the extent necessary to support any decision we may make, but we will be very protective of the individual responses. By taking this survey, you will help us to make sure that we are accurately considering and addressing the needs of forest owners like yourself.

The survey will take less than 5 minutes. The deadline to complete the survey is October 28th, 2011.

If you have any questions about the survey please contact Gary Gero at gary@climateactionreserve.org.

Thank you for your time!
