What is Carbon Sequestration

Carbon Sequestration is the process by which trees and other plants takeup (sequester) carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as they grow throught the process of photosynthesis. This decreases the consentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. Trees use the sequested carbon to grow leaves, stems, limbs, bark, and roots. The rate at which forests grow and sequester carbon is influenced by site productivity charactoristics such as climate, topography, and soils.
