Applies to offsets projects that sequester carbon by establishing a native forest from in-situ seed sources including rootstock and lignotubers. A project using this method must occur on land that has been cleared of forest cover and regrowth has occurred, but has not attained forest cover and would be cleared to maintain pastoral use unless a project is implemented.
The method uses the Full Carbon Accounting Model to calculate abatement, and accommodates baseline scenarios that allow for fluctuations in carbon stocks.
The native forest from managed regrowth method was varied in June 2015. The method must be read together with the methodology determination variation, which provides details on the changes.
