How much carbon do our trees hold?

More destructive carbon sampling work underway this week to determine how much carbon is being sequestered by existing native vegetation. Data is being logged on-site and again after the stems and branches have been dried. The flat topped yate being sampled here is looking good as a strong sequester of above ground carbon. The work is being undertaken as part of the Shell-Greening Australia Reconnections project.
