Carbon and Climate Change

The U.S Forest Service is a leader in developing tools for carbon assessment, management, and forest carbon cycle science. We are the official reporter nationally and internationally on the status of the forest carbon resource through the annual Environmental Protection Agency Greenhouse Gas Inventory and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The Forest Service champions the principles of considering carbon and other benefits together, integrating climate adaptation and mitigation, and balancing carbon uptake and storage in a wide range of ecosystem services.
