Carbon Sequestration Using Evergreen Trees

Plants are carbon “sinks,” meaning that CO2 from the atmosphere is absorbed and stored by vegetative biomass. Helpful vegetation includes all sorts of forest and grasslands, plus healthy soils that store organic material.

A healthy, diverse forest can sequester carbon at almost 2.5 tons per acre, by one estimate. In the U.S., this plant-related carbon storage is retarding the impact of our fossil-fuel production, absorbing the equivalent of 13 percent of our greenhouse-gas emissions. On the other hand, by some estimates, almost 20 percent of worldwide CO2 emissions are released during destruction of forests and grasslands.
