How much carbon is there in our woodlands?

Forests are a key part of the global carbon cycle. As trees grow, carbon is removed from the atmosphere so there is much interest in tree planting and woodland expansion to help slow down the increase of atmospheric greenhouse gases that is causing rapid climate change. It is important to understand how much carbon trees and woodlands in the UK take up, and how much they store.

About the series

Aimed at practitioners, the factsheets showcase the breadth of research carried out by Forest Research, sometimes over decades, into how trees and forests are facing the challenges of climate change, and actionable insights into how trees and woodlands can help mitigate the effects of climate change.
