Wednesday, March 2, 2022. 3:00 PM. Webinar: FCWG Learning Exchange Series: Emerging Climate-Oriented Bioeconomy Frameworks - a Central Role for Forests. Rachel Pasternack, Ethan Belair, and Yangyang Wang, The Nature Conservancy. Sponsored by Michigan State University. Register here.

Recent work has highlighted the potential for mass timber products to de­liver a suite of environmental and economic benefits across the forestry and construction sectors. However, there is significant uncertainty surrounding whether optimal forest policy should favor minimizing wood harvest to main­tain carbon storage, or development of new markets for long- lived wood products to maximize potential sequestration rates. The Nature Conservancy is leading research and outreach projects to investigate how potential increases in mass timber production could affect forests and develop safe­guards to mitigate any negative impacts.
