This methodology focuses on enhancing sequestration of carbon dioxide by forests, reducing carbon dioxide emissions from forests and forestry operations and maintaining or increasing stores of carbon in forest and wood product carbon pools. GHG emission reductions and removal enhancements and increased forest carbon sequestration and maintenance relative to appropriately selected baseline scenarios will be achieved by undertaking the various eligible project activities. Applicable project types include Reduced Impact Logging (RIL), Logged to Protected Forests (LtPF), Extended Rotation Age/Cutting Cycle (ERA),  Low Productive to High Productive Forests (LtHP) and Avoiding Planned Deforestation (APD).

VM0034, v1.0 has been revised to expand the applicability of the methodology to project activities located outside of the Province of British Columbia, Canada, and is now applicable for all projects located in Canada. In addition, the methodology has been updated to include default factors for projects located in the Province of Quebec.
