Forestry and Carbon in BC Report

Forests both absorb and release carbon, resulting in a dynamic balance that changes over time, depending on stand age and on type and intensity of disturbance. The relative balance between absorption and emission determines whether a particular forest ecosystem is a net carbon source or a sink. Depending on how they naturally function, and how they are managed, forests can therefore either contribute to or reduce greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.
