UW Science Now: Paul Fischer: The Contentious Forest: Using Forest Plantations
Our iconic Pacific Northwest forests offer sources of beauty, shelter, purity--and profit. While wood and paper are the primary resources with a dollar value, some foresters are now being paid to grow forests that store more carbon--a dollar value that doesn't require cutting trees. Paul Fischer, who's pursuing a Master of Science in sustainable forestry and a Master of Public Administration in environmental policy at the UW, discusses new research on how foresters can optimize timber revenue and forest carbon storage and how we should most wisely use our forests. Presented by Engage: The Science Speaker Series as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with the University of Washington, Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
