Carbon Accounting

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. Understanding the dynamics of carbon as it moves from atmosphere to living trees to forest products helps us make informed choices about forest management alternatives.
