America’s forest sector is ready for climate action and rural America can benefit

Jad Daley and Tom Martin write on The Hill that America’s forest sector and rural communities are ready to benefit from climate action.

The C3 Take
  • American forests are crucial to ecosystems and are important carbon sinks.
  • Accelerating efforts to protect our forests, through private industry and pubic-private partnerships, will be beneficial to our environment and economy.

“So why do America’s forests deserve such a strong role in climate action? America’s forests and forest products already sequester over 750 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent annually. That is nearly 15 percent of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels, and represents by far our largest land-based carbon sink. With the right actions, our forests can do even more.”
