What We Do

We make markets

SilviaTerra's Natural Capital Exchange (NCAPX) provides a marketplace for forest carbon payments. Our carbon credits represent real, immediate, and cost-efficient change on the landscape. NCAPX is starting with carbon, but will soon include markets for biodiversity, fire risk, and other forest benefits.

We provide forest data

In 2019, SilviaTerra partnered with Microsoft to produce Basemap, the first high-resolution inventory of every forest acre in the US. Basemap data delivers insight to forest stakeholders ranging from governments and conservation groups to landowners large and small.

We empower foresters

Better data enables better decisions. Since 2010, this philosophy has guided SilviaTerra's development of practical tools for America's professional foresters. Combining expertise in biometrics, remote sensing, and big data, SilviaTerra's Precision Forestry products save time and money in the field and in the office.
