FAQ on Forest Carbon

April 19, 2006

There’s progress on the climate front. Suddenly the U.S. is waking to the reality of climate change as glaciers melt and seasons become more extreme. For California, predictions of declining snow packs and drier summers mean threats to urban water supplies and higher risk of wildfire. Across the country, states are taking the initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Frequent questions arise about the California Climate Action Registry and its Forest Protocols. Forest landowners are starting to learn more and examine how the Registry might benefit them. Some misconceptions have developed, thus a brief overview helps in understanding how the protocols work and the potential they offer to landowners, forests and the global environment.

Read the FAQ developed by visiting CNR faculty member Andrea Tuttle, former director of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection:
