Webinar: Forest Management for Increasing Carbon Sequestration with Biochar
Thursday, 18 February 2021, 11:00
Thursday, February 18, 2021. 11:00 AM. Webinar: Forest Management for Increasing Carbon Sequestration with Biochar. Carlos Rodriguez Franco, USDA Forest Service Research and Development. Sponsored by USDA Forest Service. More information here.
This is the first webinar in the Biochar series for 2021. This webinar will cover aspects related to forest management approaches that can help with negative emissions technologies to increase C sequestration and retention in two ways: (1) apply silvicultural practices that change residual tree growing space by increasing the allocation of that space, water, and nutrients for increased growth and (2) use the current non- value removed biomass to create biochar. In addition the presentation will cover how C sequestered during biochar application, in combination with sustainable biomass production, can be C negative and therefore used to actively remove CO2 from the atmosphere with different applications.
