Problem Addressed: Small landowner forest carbon assessment
Goal(s)/Objective(s): Conduct a forest carbon inventory for a small woodlot in Maine
Key Findings: It’s not simply carbon stored in trees that matters, it’s also the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) that trees pull out of the atmosphere for photosynthesis, then absorb and store as carbon in the solid wood of live trees.
Problem Addressed: Carbon dynamics of diverse forests in ecological reserves
Goal(s)/Objective(s): Quantify current and future carbon dynamics by forest type for existing ecological reserves in Maine
Key Findings: Difference in C stocks between ecoreserves and representative FIA plots was dependent on forest type; Average C stock was nearly double for ecoreservens when compared to FIA
Problem Addressed: Comparison of state-level tree biomass estimates
Goal(s)/Objective(s): Evaluate and compare various methods of estimating biomass in live trees within the state of Maine
Key Findings: Understanding the limitations of biomass estimation methods is ultimately necessary in order to make credible inferences to real-world applications.
