Abstract

The specific objectives of this project were: 1) Determine financial viability of enrolling forest landowners in Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) forestry carbon offset protocols; 2) Determine financial trade-offs associated with managing loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) and Cherrybark oak (Quercus pagoda Raf.) stands for increased carbon sequestration and timber; 3) Examine financial feasibility of increasing carbon accumulation in wood products carbon by extending rotation length of loblolly pine stands; and 4) Explore potential impacts of carbon policies and programs on future carbon accumulation in Mississippi’s forest sector.
