"Trees are the most powerful concentrators of carbon on earth. You might be surprised to learn young forests outperform old-growth in carbon absorption. Although old trees contain large amounts of carbon, their rate of absorption has slowed to a near halt, or reversed due to the dying and rotting of older trees. A young tree, although it contains little fixed carbon, pulls CO2 from the atmosphere at a much faster rate, which is a prime reason that we need younger, vibrantly growing, healthy forests." - Dr. Patrick Moore, Chairman Greenspirit Strategies, Vancouver, BC.
