CLIMATE REGULATION

Forest ecosystems, especially woodland areas, potentially contribute to the mitigation of climate change thanks to their impact on the global carbon cycle, that is, growing trees capture carbon from the atmosphere and store it in their trunks, branches, leaves and roots, acting as carbon sinks. Moreover, forests generate lumber for use in wooden items such as poles, tables and planks, which continue to store carbon throughout their life cycle, and other products such as biomass, which replace fossil fuels and prevent the generation of their associated carbon emissions.

 

Unfortunately, the new climate change paradigm and the scant forest management indicate there is a risk of a reduction in the carbon fixation function of European forests and a decrease in current carbon stocks.

 

In order to contribute to meeting the current challenges the CLIMARK project will study the best forest management practices with a view to optimising the carbon fixation capacity and maximising carbon storage periods both in the forest itself and in the various wood products that are obtained.
