Landscape Management

Landscape Management Activities that Sequester Carbon

Vegetative Conversion
Planting grassy & herbaceous plants in areas that have not recently supported such plants, e.g., changing surface mine land reclamation into a recurring source of income rather than just an expense.

Planting or overseeding additional grassy & herbaceous plants in an area that has been recently grazed, mowed, etc.

Grassland Preservation
Protecting an existing area of grassland from conversion to another land use.

Modified Grassland Management
Improving the management practices of an existing area of grassland to increase carbon sequestered or reduce the release of carbon dioxide.

Bio-energy Production
Planting and harvesting vegetation for the purpose of supplementing or substituting (fuel switching) fossil fuels as an energy source.

Combining agriculture and forestry on the same land area to provide agricultural products while sequestering more carbon, e.g., managing the understory of an orchard or tree plantation through grazing to optimize production.

Urban Grasslands
Planting of vegetation in urban, suburban or right of way areas for the purpose of sequestering carbon Grass Products Increased usage of products developed from grass such as building materials.

Conservation Tillage/No-Till
Reducing the release of CO2 associated with conventional tillage.

Manure Management
Reducing storage time and/or converting to energy.

Controlled Growth of Woody Plants
Actively managing woody plants for a use. Activities include planting woody plants on land that has not recently supported such plants, revegetation with woody plants and improving management practices of existing areas of woody species.
