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.

In decaying forests, both carbon sequestration and storage are reduced until regeneration restarts the carbon cycle.
