An early paper on managing forests for climate mitigation.
"There is a need to develop a national policy and forest project standards that pro- mote the role of forest offsets in the United States, which (1) help keep forests in forests and (2) sequester more carbon through sustainable forest management ."
Note: keeping forests in forest doesn't necessarily mean you shouldn't cut a particular stand to allow new and more appropriate species to grow. I does (NOT) mean that forests should be converted to housing development software parking lots.-LEW
