Forest Carbon

The potential implications of the climate change issue to the forest products industry are more complex than for any other industry. The forests that supply the industry’s raw material remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store the carbon--not only in trees, but also below ground in soils and root systems, and ultimately in forest products. These forests and their carbon sequestration potential are affected by management practices, climate, and by the rise in atmospheric CO2.

NCASI’s Climate Change Research Program contains elements that address many of these issues and others. Most of NCASI’s reports and work products related to climate change are available to the public in the Climate Change section of this website.
