Pacific Northwest Forests Store More Carbon Per Acre Than Any In The World

How Do Big Trees Store Carbon? 

The Biden administration has promised to listen to the public and the top scientists. Make your voice heard, let them know you want to protect big trees, wildlife and water.

Why protect big trees?

Protecting our older forests from logging is a simple, cost effective climate solution that conserves carbon sinks and ensures carbon is also pulled from the atmosphere.

The bigger trees get the more carbon they store

“We see the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve as a model. This program guards against future supply disruptions and stores nearly 800 million gallons of oil. We propose creating strategic forest carbon reserves as a way of stabilizing the climate, much as the Strategic Petroleum Reserve helps to stabilize oil markets.”

– Drs. Beverly Law and William Moomaw, Forest Climate experts
