CollectiveCrunch enters the U.S. market

5 June 2023
Partnership with OSU College of Forestry marks the company’s official entry into the U.S. market.

CollectiveCrunch, the creator of the AI-powered platform that enables sustainable forestry at scale, has launched a pilot project with the Oregon State University College of Forestry. The collaboration marks CollectiveCrunch’s first forest carbon partnership in the U.S. market, and sets the stage for further growth opportunities for the company.

The College of Forestry, a leading academic institution for the advancement of forestry-related research and science, actively manages 15,000 acres of research forests. The college will compare the data provided by CollectiveCrunch’s carbon measurement tools against existing on-the-ground carbon inventory approaches, to identify opportunities for optimization as it plans for and researches various forest management scenarios.

“CollectiveCrunch’s AI-based Linda Planet solution eliminates the uncertainty and subjectivity associated with forest carbon assessments by providing a scientific and data-driven approach to forest carbon management,” said Rolf Schmitz, Co-Founder of CollectiveCrunch. “We are thrilled to partner with Oregon State University for forest carbon inventories, marking our entry into the U.S. market,” said Schmitz.
