An illustrated graphic that shows how managed forests absorb carbon from the atmosphere and store it in growing trees, how harvbest produces wood products that also store carbon in buildings and other things, and how sustainable forestry practices such as replanting keep managed forests healthy and perpetuate a cycle that is very good at absorbing and storing carbon from the atmosphere.
