Forests, Carbon, and Climate Change Forum (EUG)

Half of Oregon is covered in forests, which absorb and store a tremendous amount of carbon from the atmosphere. This makes our state uniquely positioned to confront the problem of global climate change. Recent research shows that clear cutting our forests dumps massive amounts of carbon into the atmosphere, making Oregon’s timber industry a major contributor to climate change. Other scientific studies have illuminated the role that old-growth forests can play in mitigating climate change by absorbing and safely storing carbon for centuries.
