Trees enlisted in carbon control

| Sourced From Coloradoan |

Researchers at the U.S. Forest Service’s Rocky Mountain Research Station in Fort Collins are taking a look at how managing forests to promote carbon sequestration might help put a damper on climate change.

All those trees in the mountains absorb carbon in the air originating from vehicle tail pipes, which means the more trees there are in the woods, the more vehicle carbon emissions are trapped in the forest without contributing to climate change, said Tom Crow, manager of the Forest and Woodlands Ecosystem Pro-gram at the Rocky Mountain Research Station.
