An examination of the impact of improved genetic material on carbon sequestration in managed loblolly pine forests

This presentation will examine how forest genetics is impacting carbon sequestration rates. Five-year results from two studies designed to evaluate how enhanced genetics is impacting production and carbon sequestration will serve as the basis for making projections of genetic effects on rotation length carbon sequestration rates. The potential impacts on increased carbon sequestration that full scale deployment of enhanced genetics could have will be discussed.
