Abstract:

Forests located on U.S. Department of Defense DOD training installations throughout the United States offer promising opportunities to sequester and conserve atmospheric carbon because many lands could be reforested, other lands could receive management practices that would improve tree growth, while additional lands support mature forests that are vast carbon reservoirs. The primary purpose of this report is to explore the influence of management practices such as tree harvesting, deforestation, and reforestation on carbon sequestration potential by DOD forests by performing a detailed analysis of a specific installation. Camp Shelby, Mississippi was selected for analysis.
