Managing Forests With Climate Change in Mind

Article

When Chris Martland analyzes a landowner’s forest to develop a management plan, he has a number of issues to consider—the landowner’s goals, what’s best for long-term forest health, how he can improve biodiversity and wildlife habitat, market conditions, and climate change.

Active Forest Management to Help Maximize Long-Term Carbon Benefits

Multimedia with summary

While it may seem counterintuitive, selectively removing trees from the forest through harvesting is often the best way to maximize the benefits that forests provide for mitigating climate change.

Forest carbon sequestration rates and storage levels change as forests naturally evolve. Young, fast-growing forests have the highest carbon sequestration rates, while older, mature forests have higher levels of carbon storage. In decaying forests, both carbon sequestration and storage are reduced until regeneration restarts the carbon cycle.
