Winter Lecture: Carbon – Better in the Woods or the Wood Product?

Join the Benton Chapter of the Oregon Small Woodlands Association and OSU Benton County Extension for a discussion about the fate of carbon in wood. The speakers, Elaine Oneil and Maureen Puettmann, are both research scientists and family woodlands owners and will discuss the science, policy, and practice of forest carbon in Oregon. Learn to view your woodlands through the lens of Life Cycle Assessment which measures the environmental impacts of production, use, and disposal of forest products. Explore management options to optimize carbon sequestration on your property.
