Now available on Amazon is Forest Carbon by the Numbers: Understanding the Hottest Forest Product of the 2020s.

Carbon is becoming a highly valued commodity of forests. Trees sequester carbon dioxide and turn it into wood, storing carbon in forests and long-lived forest products for long time periods. Despite the increased recognition of carbon as a natural climate solution and several emerging markets that monetize it, few professionals in forestry and natural resources have a grasp on the amount and extent of forest carbon in the ecosystems they work in.

In Forest Carbon by the Numbers, I share insights and visualizations of the current status and trends in forest carbon and how it impacts the forest products industry.

In Forest Carbon by the Numbers, you will understand:

  • Terminology associated with forest carbon measurements and markets,
  • How forest carbon is quantified (from individual tree to landscape scales),
  • How to leverage forest inventory data to understand forest biomass and carbon, and
  • Trends and future opportunities in forest carbon.
