Carbon and Forestry: Topic Sheet

An important benefit of the abundant forests that cover nearly half of Oregon is their ability to store atmospheric carbon in the wood they produce. 
Forests absorb significant amounts of carbon, sequestering it from the atmosphere. It remains stored even after trees are harvested and made into wood products.
The science around the interactions between forests and carbon is complex, but what's clear is that there are a number of strategies that can work in tandem to help maximize the positive impacts forests and wood products can have on climate change mitigation.
