E7: Forests and their role as a natural climate solution This is U.S. Sustainability

    • Business

When it comes to capturing and storing carbon, there is nothing better on land than forests, says Professor Tony D’Amato, a silviculture expert from the University of Vermont and guest on This is U.S. Sustainability. The challenge is ensuring that forests stay as forests, he adds.
 
According to Paul Catanzaro, a professor and state extension forester from the University of Massachusetts, the issue is compounded by an aging demographic of private landowners who own around 70% of forests in New England.  “The decisions that these current landowners make about what will happen to their land when they pass away will largely shape the public benefits that we receive in the future,” he says.
 
Tune in to the latest episode of This is U.S. Sustainability to hear how Paul and Tony work together to reach family forest owners and ensure they have the information and resources to make the right decisions about their land. And learn about the vital role Tim Stout, a Vermont landowner, plays in amplifying their message.
