Forest Carbon Incentives: Options for Landowner Incentives to Increase Forest Carbon Sequestration
U.S. forests play an important role in the nation’s effort to address climate change; they are vital terrestrial carbon sinks. These ecosystems also provide vital services like drinking water and wildlife habitat, and enjoyment to millions of Americans. The majority of the nation’s forests are in private ownership, so it is critical that private forest landowners are encouraged to improve and secure the emissions reductions they can provide, while helping these ecosystems adapt to climate change. Failing to engage private landowners at the broadest scale possible not only limits the role of the nation’s forests in increased climate change mitigation, but also risks increased forest‐based emissions and declines in the health and richness of forest ecosystems over the coming decades.

Forest conservation in the Anthropocene
There is increasing scientific acceptance that we have entered a new “Anthropocene Epoch” wherein human influence, especially in climate and global population, is altering the evolution of virtually every ecosystem on the planet. Representing one-quarter of terrestrial ecosystems, but containing an estimated two-thirds of carbon in living terrestrial organisms, and nearly three-quarters of terrestrial species, our forests face growing risk in the Anthropocene.

The growing European demand for U.S. wood biomass requires buyers to demonstrate enhanced sustainability of North America's forest resources. Download PDF
