Forest resources play key role in mitigating climate change

Scientific and environmental researchers are continuing to gather evidence that forest resources play an important role in mitigating climate change.

Forests play several roles in greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction strategies, for example as a reservoir for storing carbon and as a source of renewable energy. By using forest biomass to replace fossil fuels, as well as to replace construction materials, we will continue to reduce global GHG emissions.

The National Council for Air and Stream Improvement (NCASI) – a research institute that undertakes scientific and sustainability studies relevant to forest management – is currently testing alternative forest management and biomass-use scenarios to better understand which has the greatest climate benefits.
