Unique among all possible options for mitigating climate change, forests and forestry can both prevent and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and simultaneously provide essential environmental, social, and economic benefits-from clean water and wildlife habitat to outdoor recreation and forest products.
This book lays out the possibilities:
The technology exists now to conserve and manage forests both to prevent emissions and to reduce the carbon already in the atmosphere. Many of the other solutions to climate change are not ready for large-scale deployment, but managed forests provide solutions that can be adopted quickly and begin preventing and reducing greenhouse gas emissions today.
Immediacy is critical: The forces of climate change are already at work. The forestry solution can and must be implemented now.

The facts of climate change and the implications for forest management have become increasingly clear. I believe history will judge the leaders of our age by how well we respond to climate change. The Society of American Foresters' efforts, particularly through the development of this comprehensive report, will help ensure that forests and forestry play a key role in this essential discussion and contribute in a significant way to a proactive set of short- and long-term solutions. --Gail Kimbell, Chief, US Forest Service
