  1. To clarify, what was the counter-intuitive discovery that the presence of mulch and managed lawns? Do those land-cover types positively benefit the BU’s carbon impact (sequestering carbon), or is it counter-intuitive that those land-cover types somehow negatively affects BU’s carbon impact (with relatively little sequestration or impacts from fuel spent on management)?

    Thanks for your reporting or any clarification you can provide – apologies if it was missed in the original article!
