Landowners with forests as small as 40 acres can receive payment for growing their trees
lands in the US
When enrolling all or a portion of your forests, you make a 40-year commitment to LandYield. This commitment is divided into two 20-year periods. The first 20 years are the crediting period during which you will receive quarterly payments for deferring harvests on enrolled areas.
During the second 20-year period, you will be required to maintain the carbon sequestered to that point with the option to harvest additional growth, or, depending on registry rules at that time, to continue to defer harvests and receive carbon payments based on your forest’s on-going growth.
LandYield will manage all reporting and monitoring activities and pay associated costs for the 40-year period.

Harvest deferral & fixed prices
Landowner revenue over the first three years are set using a fixed offset price.
Harvest deferral & market-linked earnings
Beginning in the fourth year, your payments are directly tied to current carbon offset market prices. If carbon offset prices rise, your revenue will grow accordingly.
Limited harvests or continued market-linked offset earnings
In the second 20-year period, you are allowed to begin harvesting your enrolled lands (while maintaining Y20 carbon stocks). Depending on the registry rules then in effect, you may also have the opportunity to commit to a second harvest deferral to continue to receive additional offset revenue. In either case, you can still cut timber for your own personal use and in other specific circumstances.See FAQ for details
