9.02.00 - Forest sector analysis



The Economics of US Forests as a Natural Climate Solution

Webinar; 29 April 2021

This event was organized jointly by The Ohio State University, North Carolina State University, the University of Maine, the University of Idaho, and IUFRO.

Presenters provided recent results from leading forest economic models that estimate the costs and potential of carbon sequestration in U.S. forests and provide U.S. scale estimates of forest-based mitigation potential and costs for various activities (afforestation, reforestation, forest management, rotation extensions), as well as at the regional, county and mill-shed scale for relevant activities.

A panel discussion focussed on how to move from ambition to reality on the landscape with experts on market design and implementation.
