Title: Fact Sheet: The Economic Value of Selling Carbon Credits by Restoring the Navajo Nation’s Tribal Forests

Author: Huang, C.H.

Subject: Carbon, Economics

Abstract: Arizona is home to 21 federally recognized tribes and more than 250,000 Native Americans. Reservations and tribal communities comprise more than a quarter of Arizona's land base. The majority of tribal forests are located within the Navajo Nation and the White Mountain Apache Tribe reservations, and are managed in cooperation with the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Research about the financial feasibility of carbon (C) se-questration on American Indian forests is critical, but unprecedented until this study by Dr. Ching-Hsun Huang and Christopher Sorensen of the NAU School of Forestry.
