Reforestation of rainforests sequesters more carbon than plantations

Date : 3rd August 2010, Source : Mongabay

The research tested three projects in north-eastern Australia: a rainforest reforesting project using a variety of native trees, a mixed species plantation, and a monoculture plantation of conifers.
