Description

Resources have been developed in the literature to enable landowners to estimate the carbon sequestration timeline of forest products derived from their land. These tools were used here to estimate sequestration and emissions related to harvests carried out in Ravalli County from 1945 to 2007. This county-level accounting of product carbon release can later be combined with county-level estimates of growth and emissions from fire and other sources to provide landscape-level insights into relationships between forest carbon exchange and processes like harvest and fire.
