ACRE Investment Management connects velocity and scale with forests and carbon.
True environmental solutions are fundamental to the restoration of the health and vitality of America’s heartland. In order to succeed, these solutions must be comprehensive, focused, and inextricably woven into our economic development. Finally, the shift away from incrementalism to significant investment is starting to take place and Acre Investment Management is leading the charge.
ACRE Investment Management is in the midst of the greatest single private conservation forestry initiative ever undertaken in the United States — a 10 year, one million acre conservation initiative building new forests in America that unite scale, speed, restoration, carbon generation, ecosystem repair, and climate impact. This vision aims to plant over 500 million new trees, and will result in the generation of 300 million reforestation carbon credits in the ensuing decades.
Trees enable the growth of carbon supply. That’s precisely why ACRE Investment Management is committed to the carbon asset as the foundation that drives forest creation. The economics of carbon in terms of price and demand is the foundation for growing forestry ecosystems on scale. At the same time, reforestation is critical to meet the increasing demand for carbon credits. The new forests planted by ACRE Investment Management will help satisfy this appetite. ACRE Investment Management achieves this through four operating businesses.
Big River Cottonwood, a subsidiary of ACRE Investment Management, is the leading cottonwood nursery in the South Central United States.
GreenTrees is the leading carbon reforestation project in the world by credit issuance with over 5 million metric tons of verified carbon credits issued so far. To date, GreenTrees comprises of 120,000 acres of reforestation in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley with our 500+ landowner partners. We are currently expanding our forestry base and replicating it into other river systems in the US.
Conservation+ works with landowners to plant nutrient mitigation banks. Additionally, the company is active in wetland and stream mitigation, improved forest management and blue carbon.
Forest Green is a micro-transaction platform that helps consumers be the change they want to see in the world.
We partner with a wide variety of organizations including investors, corporate carbon buyers, nongovernmental organizations, private landowners and government agencies.
ACRE Investment Management owns and operates a leading nursery in the South Central part of the US. We actively work with landowners to encourage reforestation on private lands. Therefore, we finance, plant, grow, manage, monitor, verify, and sell the annual growth of our forest for carbon credits. We also provide thought leadership for the public sphere.
GreenTrees plants native species and through carbon verification must deliver permanence as defined by the registry world.
