The Society of American Foresters (SAF) has published “Forest Carbon Accounting Considerations in US Bioenergy Policy” in the Journal of Forestry. The article identifies and examines scientific-based insights essential to understanding forest bioenergy and “carbon debts” and illustrates why quantifying the full spectrum of forest-based activities is critical when accounting for biogenic carbon and carbon dioxide. More importantly, the article derives that wood products and energy resources derived from forests have the potential to play an important and ongoing role in mitigating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
