Young Managed Forests & Forest Products Sequester More Carbon

A forester and professor at the University of British Columbia said that "research has shown that the optimal landscape-level carbon sequestration policy may be to harvest and replant stands when they reach their peak growth rate. Ideally we would use the harvested forest material - wood and fibre - to displace as much fossil fuel, steel, and concrete as possible, to reduce carbon dioxide releases."
