These reports represent the company's efforts to track non-financial performance as well as strategic objectives to set quantitative targets for corporate governance and environmental impact - with a particular focus on climate change mitigation.

CARIBBEAN TIMBERLANDS

In 2018 TFG began using oxen for harvesting timber from plantations in Costa Rica. Skidding logs out of the forest with oxen lowers soil impacts, reducing the potential for erosion, and lowers residual stand damage. The production costs of using oxen are comparable to using conventional mechanized equipment.

APPALACHIAN FORESTS

Since 2012 TFG has integrated forest carbon offset projects into forest management planning and practice, as a means of generating revenue while mitigating the effects of climate change. This video highlights the people, the place, and the process of the development of one of the largest forest carbon offset projects in the US to date in the Central Appalachians.

CONNECTICUT LAKES

In recent years, TFG has worked in cooperation with Trout Unlimited and the New Hampshire Fish & Game Department on a variety of aquatic ecosystem restoration projects. These projects include improved culvert location and design for more natural water flows, control of invasive species in wetlands, introduction of large woody material for improved fish habitat, and maintenance of wetland riparian zones.
