About Us

Cariboo Carbon Solutions (CCS) was established in 2020 as a subsidiary of Zanzibar Holdings. Zanzibar Holdings has a long history (since 1980) of delivering high quality projects in silviculture across BC including: tree planting, training, DTA/DTF and silviculture surveys. CCS was conceived of as an expansion into managing and developing the activities needed to deliver wildfire forest rehabilitation projects. “Cariboo Carbon Solutions” as a name came from the work CCS contributed under the FCI program, to reforest areas in 2017 Hanceville and Plateau fires for carbon sequestration. Since 2020 CCS has expanded its operations and projects to wildfire impacted areas including: 100 Mile House, Williams Lake, Quesnel, Merritt, Kamloops, Keremeos, Vancouver Island, and North Vancouver.
