Advancing Forest and Wood Products Carbon Markets

Forests and forest products represent America’s greatest at-scale solution for carbon reduction and reaching our climate goals. Through a continuous cycle of growing, harvesting and replanting, America’s forests act as a carbon sink – capturing CO2 from the atmosphere as they grow and converting it to carbon that is stored in the fiber of the tree.

These forests need healthy markets in order to remain economically and environmentally sustainable. The Georgia Forestry Foundation is working to develop markets that help sustain our working forests, including markets for forest carbon and sustainable building products.
