2021 CLEAR Webinar presentation on forest management for carbon sequestration and climate adaptation presented by Todd Ontl, Northern institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS) as part f the Finding the Right Tree for the Right Time speaker series in collaboration with the Avalonia Land Conservancy and Ct Sea Grant. Presented on 4/14/21. This talk introduces the fundamental ideas on how adapting forests to changing climate conditions supports forest carbon sequestration and storage. Dr. Ontl outlines principles of carbon stocks and cycling within forest ecosystems and the impacts of management actions through the lens of climate risk and vulnerability, and various approaches for enhancing the carbon sequestration capacity of coastal forests in the northeastern U.S. This presentation provides examples of how forest managers are integrating goals of climate adaptation with targets for increasing the carbon mitigation capacity of their forests, and provides a look to opportunities in the region to support landowners and land trusts interested in forest carbon management.
