This book lays out the possibilities:
• using energy from wood biomass and mill residuals instead of fossil fuels;
• substituting wood products for fossil fuel-intensive steel, concrete, brick, and aluminum building components;
• adjusting forest management practices to capture additional atmospheric carbon dioxide;
• retaining forest cover and its potential to mitigate climate change;
• capturing and storing atmospheric carbon in forest carbon "pools" and long-lived wood products; and
• developing markets for carbon trading and creating market-based incentives for forestry projects that offset emissions from industrial and other polluters
