10am: Forest Management for Climate Change Mitigation in New York

–––Tim Fahey (Liberty Hyde Bailey Professor, Cornell University)

Land management offers the potential for climate change mitigation through sequestration of carbon, especially in the forest sector. This webinar will explain and evaluate key aspects of this potential with a focus on New York State. The webinar will cover such topics as: carbon stocks in trees and soils, silvicultural options in a changing climate, natural disturbances and risks, wood products and substitution for fossil fuels.

11am:New York State climate change legislation impact on forests and carbon sequestration statewide panel recommendations and current incentives for private landowners.

–––Bryan Ellis (Forest Climate Section Leader, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Lands and Forests)

New York forests are a critical component to reaching NYs climate goals through their sequestration and storage of carbon. To achieve these goals the CLCPA Agriculture and Forestry panel recommended five main strategies 1) keep forests as forests, avoided conversion 2) improved forest management 3) afforestation/reforestation 4) urban forestry 5) bioeconomy. While many of the mechanisms for these systematic changes are still underway there are currently opportunities available for landowners to help combat climate change on their properties.

This series is co-hosted with the USDA Northeast Climate Hub.

This series is supported by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Smith Lever Project 2019-20-110.
