- As we know, forests act as carbon sinks, pulling carbon from the atmosphere and storing. However, up until now, there hasn’t been a clear calculation as to how much carbon it can store.
- A recent study from the Department of Wildland Resources that by looking at existing and future collections of tree rings, this could provide a direct record of the carbon as well as provide an annual time stamp.
- These new calculations could provide an inventory of growth across space and time, from microsite to macrosystem and from years to centuries.
