Forest’s role in climate change mitigation hos Københavns Universitet

Forest ecosystems potentially play many roles in mitigating climate change. They store carbon in trees and soil, they store carbon outside the forest in long-lived wood products, through wood products, they displace other products, e.g. concrete, steel, coal, or natural gas, which emit greenhouse gases or require a lot of energy for their production. While forests can contribute to all roles simultaneously, there tradeoffs between the roles; one cannot optimize for all roles at the same time. The project aims to quantify the tradeoffs between different roles and build a simple model based on empirical data to explore scenarios for forest ecosystem management.
