We bring lost forests back to life.

The Story of Us 


Carbon Down was born in the mountains of Colorado.

Our founders, Ian and Leif, spent much of their lives growing up in the western forests of the US, with Leif in Southern California, and Ian in Colorado.  

However, these two states have had some of the worst fires in decades, with many of the forests they grew up in burning down in catastrophic fires.

Years after fires had burned down their local forests, there were no signs of recovery.
