Webinar: The Economics of US Forests as a Natural Climate Solution

Apr 29, 2021 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (U.S. and Canada)

This two-hour webinar will provide recent results from leading forest economic models that estimate the costs and potential of carbon sequestration in U.S. forests. Presentations will 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 will focus on how to move from ambition to reality on the landscape with experts on market design and implementation.

Anyone with an interest in better understanding the potential capacity and mechanisms through which the U.S. can sequester and store more carbon over the next decade and beyond would benefit from attending.
