Abstract or Description
Carbon sequestration is an effective approach to controlling the deleterious effects of greenhouse gases, the principal agent of climate change. As trees grow they utilize carbon dioxide (CO2) in the production of biomass, sequestering it in living tissue and preventing it from being released into the atmosphere. Governments, businesses, and individuals are using carbon sequestration as a way to take responsibility for their own emissions.
