Forest Growth Provides an Important Carbon Sink
This figure appears in chapter 7 of the Climate Change Impacts in the United States: The Third National Climate Assessment report.
Forests are the largest component of the U.S. carbon sink, but growth rates of forests vary widely across the country.Well-watered forests of the Pacific Coast and Southeast absorb considerably more than the arid southwestern forests or the colder northeastern forests. Climate change and disturbance rates, combined with current societal trends regarding land use and forest management, are projected to reduce forest CO2 uptake in the coming decades.78f2cbd8-d8f2-4d99-abbd-017bad4d52f1 Figure shows average forest growth as measured by net primary production from 2000 to 2006.
