Forests in 'Top 20' for Carbon by Chris Thomas SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The national forests of northern California are some of the hardest-working in the United States when it comes to keeping global warming pollution out of the atmosphere. Of the top 20 forests in the country for storing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, seven are in California. A study of U.S. Forest Service data indicates dense West Coast forests contain about twice as much carbon in their branches, roots and soil as forests in other parts of the country. Study author Mike Anderson, senior resource analyst with The: Wilderness Society, says a combination of older trees, longer growing seasons and fewer wildfires allow a forest to store more carbon, and some parts of California fit that profile. "The Six Rivers National Forest in northern California was next down after the top 10. And six other national forests in California also store relatively large amounts of carbon, compared to the national average." The others on the list are the Klamath and Shasta-Trinity in northern California and, in the Sierra Nevada range, the Eldorado, Plumas, Tahoe and Sierra national forests. The top 10 forests are all farther north, in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. Anderson says the findings have implications for how national forest land is used, and he will share them with federal forest managers. "We want to see if there's anything else we can do to make sure that these forests are protected and continue to serve this important carbon-storing function they're doing so well." Compared to the amount of carbon burned by using fossil fuels for one year in the United States, Anderson says the top 10 forests alone hold almost two years' worth of carbon, filtering it out of the atmosphere.
