There are 2 comments on City Trees and Soil Are Sucking More Carbon Out of the Atmosphere Than Previously Thought

  1. Trees grow faster without competition, but rapid growth is weak. Trees that grow fast die fast. Old growth is the best solution. Unfortunately, I don’t think there are any shortcuts or alternatives to a human presence with a much less injurious footprint on nature.

  2. In Pittsfield Berkshire County we have an urban forest in Springside Park which provides a tremendous amount of carbon sequestration and storage in the 231 acres of oak hickory and maple. But the eco-services being provided by this Urban Forest are being threatened by mountain bikers which are dismantling the trails, scaring away wildlife and fragmenting the forest ecology.
