LANDOWNERS & FORESTERS
How To Sell Carbon Credits with Us
A Forest Carbon Program for All Landowners
Now enrolling landowners across the contiguous US.
When companies pay you to grow larger, more carbon-rich trees, everyone wins. Our partnership with NCX's technology enables every American landowner to sell carbon credits. No acre minimums for one-year contracts. And no enrollment fee. Ever. Your forests have value well beyond timber. Join hundreds of landowners at NCX and sell your forest carbon credits, bringing that value to market.
Get Paid Annually.
You want to earn income from your trees, but you can’t commit to the burdensome terms of traditional forest carbon programs. We get it. We were foresters first. That’s why we offer the flexibility of year-to-year terms. With remote sensing technology, we give you the tools to better understand your woods. No onsite measurements needed. Getting started is easy. To learn more about the carbon potential of your property, get started with your free property assessment today.
FEES TO PARTICIPATE:
4 Simple Steps
Submit your property information for a no-cost, remote assessment via Basemap. No commitment required. We just need the coordinates of your property to do the assessment. Please fill out the form at the end of the page to get started.
The assessment will show how many acres are eligible to be enrolled and at what prices per acre. Determine the acreage you want to enroll for harvest deferral—below your business-as-usual baseline.
If your bid is accepted, reduce your timber harvesting plans to meet your deferral commitment. If you end up losing or cutting 5% of timber enrolled you will still be paid in full. If you cut or lose more than 5% you will just get paid at a lower rate. No penalties or charges ever. Just income.
At the end of the one-year agreement, a follow up assessment is done and we will issues payment based on that. You are then eligible to join the next enrollment cycle to sell carbon credits the next year with this follow up assessment.

We are working with Verra to certify the integrity of our carbon credits
NCX has received concept note acceptance from Verra on the methodology titled “Methodology for IFM/ERA through Targeted, Short-Term Harvest Deferral” for calculating the climate impact of forest carbon.
“Verra is excited about the potential of NCX’s methodology, in particular its incorporation of ton-year accounting and its use of remote sensing to improve measurements both for baselining and for project monitoring. We believe this approach has the potential to unlock greater supply, reduce monitoring costs, address issues of project reversibility, and increase transparency in forest carbon markets.”
For Short-Term Harvest Deferral
The Natural Capital Exchange approach is based on science from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), timber economics, and cutting-edge statistical models. Our methodology increases certainty for buyers and sellers. Through short-term harvest deferrals, landowners and managers get paid to reduce harvest activity and thereby grow older and more carbon-rich forests. This method produces the climate impact we need today—not the impact that may happen someday, maybe.
NCX uses Basemap’s high-resolution inventory of every American forest to power its carbon exchange. In-house scientists produce precise inventories of a forest’s composition and carbon potential across every single acre.
