The trees of a Finnish pine forest bind approximately 9.5 tons of carbon dioxide per hectare each year. The carbon from the atmosphere is stored into trees, soil and processed lumber. Each cubic meter of wood stores roughly 0.9 tons of carbon dioxide.
The carbon storage of a forest is directly proportional to the amount of wood it contains. The more it has wood, the more it absorbs carbon dioxide. Therefore, each forest owner can take part in carbon sequestration by managing their forests effectively. A productive and vital commercial forest is also ecological.
