Climate Change and Virginia Forests

The world’s forests, including the forests of Virginia, play a large, positive role in the climate change issue. Reports estimate that forest tree growth in Virginia sequesters 6.42 million metric tons of carbon each year (the equivalent of 23.54 million metric tons of CO2). A DEQ report estimates Virginia’s contribution to carbon sources at 120 million metric tons of CO2Thus Virginia forests offset nearly 20% of Virginia’s CO2 emissions.
