Through the Wildlands Carbon project, Northeast Wilderness Trust and SIG Carbon are creating a model that directly results in protected wild forests, benefits local land trusts, and could be scaled up and replicated across the country.
It is now well-accepted that old forests store large amounts of carbon, but controversy remains over the age at which forests sequester the most carbon annually. Part 2 of NEWT’s Wild Carbon paper summarizes recent research to show that old forests are excellent at sequestering carbon from the atmosphere.
Northeast Wilderness Trust’s pledge to protect 25,000 acres by 2025, as set forth in our five-year strategic plan, supports the 1t.org campaign to protect and plant 1 trillion trees in a decade.
Join this critical discussion on the importance of protecting both wildlands AND woodlands. Tune in via Zoom on Tuesday, December 15 from 4:00–5:30 PM.
