Widest trees dominate carbon storage in Pacific Northwest forests, study shows

Nov. 5 (UPI) — Proposed amendments to a 1994 law preventing the logging of trees with diameters greater than 21 inches could undermine the protection of the region’s largest trees.

New research, published Thursday in the journal Frontiers in Forests and Global Change, suggest the widest trees dominate carbon storage in the forests of Oregon and Washington State.

When scientists surveyed the population of wide-diameter trees in study plots on national forest lands in the Pacific Northwest, they found trees with diameters in excess of 21 inches accounted for just 3 percent of the tree population, but stored 42 percent of the total above-ground carbon.

The findings are only the latest to highlight the ecological services provided by bigger, older trees.

Previous studies have shown forests with healthy populations of larger, older trees tend to be more heterogenous and host greater biodiversity.

They also store more carbon than homogenous forest
