Managing forests for wood, wildfire, and carbon in California and beyond
Natural carbon sinks can help mitigate climate change, but climate risks - like increased wildfire - threaten forests' capacity to store carbon. California has recently set ambitious forest management goals to reduce these risks. However, management can incur carbon losses because wood residues are often burnt or left to decay. In this talk, I will present my dissertation work that applies a systems approach to assess climate change mitigation potential and wildfire outcomes across forest management scenarios and several uses for harvested wood. Then I will explore how this academic work has evolved to interface with policy and industry.
