Left Standing, Pacific Northwest Forests Could Cool the Climate

Date : 9th July 2009, Source : ENS



CORVALLIS, Oregon, July 9, 2009 (ENS) The deep green forests of the Pacific Northwest hold great potential to increase carbon storage and help mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, if they are managed primarily for that purpose, new research has found. In the complete absence of fire or timber harvest, the forests of Oregon and Northern California could theoretically almost double their carbon storage, according to scientists in the Oregon State University College of Forestry.
