Our Forests as a Natural Climate Solution

Highstead Foundation report New England’s Climate Imperative: Our Forests as a Natural Climate Solution highlights New England forests’ untapped potential in the fight against climate change and indicates they could sequester at least 20 percent of the region’s current emissions and, if all New England states meet their emissions-reduction goals, up to 97 percent of remaining emissions in 30 years. These findings are consistent with other analyses performed by report coauthors from New England Forestry Foundation.
