Title: Forest Carbon: An essential natural solution for climate change

Description:  Forests play a critical role in reducing the effects of climate change. There is growing debate about the most appropriate strategy to maximize this benefit. This presentation will cover the role carbon plays within forests, the impacts and trade-offs of land-use options on forest carbon, and specific carbon-informed forest management strategies to help maintain carbon storage during a timber harvest.

Meet our Speaker: Paul Catanzaro is an Associate Professor and the State Extension Forester at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.  Paul teaches courses in the Forest Ecology and Land Conservation concentration and is co-Director of the Family Forest Research Center, a partnership of the USDA Forest Service and UMass Amherst.  Paul’s research and outreach work focuses primarily on legacy planning and forest resiliency.  

Forest Carbon with Paul Catanzaro  

  • ..."Forests have always provided tremendous personal and public benefits, including clean water, wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities, and forest products. Recently, an additional forest benefit has been recognized: forests as an essential natural solution for climate change."
  • "The land-use decisions of New England’s landowners, particularly family forest owners, will have a profound impact on our forests’ ability to sequester and store carbon and therefore on the role they play in mitigating the effects of climate change. The greatest impact family forest owners can have on carbon is to ensure that their land remains a forest by engaging in conservation-based estate planning."
  • "Ultimately, we need landscapes with both active and passive approaches to maintain the many benefits forests provide, including carbon sequestration and storage."
