dc.description.abstract This paper describes the modeling of an afforestation project in the Lower Mainland. It follows the BC Forest Carbon Offset Protocol and it uses Tipsy 4.2 and the Canadian Carbon Budget Model to model forest stand dynamics and to examine the changing levels of ecosystem carbon throughout the project lifecycle. Over 100 years, the 10 hectare project sequesters 5,947 tonnes of carbon which is equal to 21,806 tonnes of CO₂ equivalents. Once offsets are modeled and verified, they can be marketed on either voluntary or compliance markets. Some of the issues surrounding carbon offsets include their permanence, their additionality, and their affect on the BC forest industry and these issues are discussed in this paper. en
