    Description

    Deforestation globally accounts for about 20 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions. One of the major forestry challenges in the United States is reducing the loss of forest land from development. Foresters have a critical role to play in forest management and carbon sequestration to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and forestry can be part of the solution. A recent national silviculture workshop demonstrated the importance of collaborative efforts between researchers and forest practitioners and an assessment of the potential linkage between forest management, carbon sequestration, and forest biomass in a changing climate.
