There is often a relationship between how much timber is being produced and how much carbon stocks in a forest grow or decline. There is also a huge amount of variability that exists among landowners and between the states. Having stock change and timber output data gathered in the same place helps us understand these trends, particularly if we want to encourage more climate-smart forestry.
Use the map below to explore and compare the carbon stocking and timber output of owner types and regions across the Pacific Northwest. For more information, check out our publication, Exploring the landscape of embodied carbon.
