SCAs growing forest is an obvious contributor for drawing existing carbon out of the atmosphere, a vital factor in reaching the climate goals set by the United Nations.
Tree absorption of carbon dioxide peaks early in a tree’s growth and the absorption rate drops in the later stages of their lifespan. The tree becomes neutral in climate contribution after approximately 80 years, which is when we normally harvest to make room for new growth.
The forest is constantly growing, and its renewable power will never run out if its managed and nurtured correctly. For each tree we harvest two new are planted. Ultimately, it’s thanks to thriving forest and renewable products that we can leave fossil carbon in the ground.
