Forest bind CO 2. If forests are unable to adapt to changes in the environment, individual trees are weakened, but more-over, the entire forest ecosystem becomes impaired. Contact Content Legal information Imprint Search. Climate change has made forestry more risky. The total storage capacity of the forest is ultimately determined from these so-called carbon pools.

Selected Results of the Third National Forest Inventory

The diversity of mixed forests distributes the risk. They store carbon and can therefore contribute globally to lowering the CO 2 content of the atmosphere.

In addition to the storage function, timber products contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions amounting to buundeswaldinventur million tonnes of CO 2 equivalent annually through substitution effects substituting for more energy intensive fossil resources and fuels. Forest bind CO 2 In addition to the carbon stocks in the living biomass and in the deadwood in the forests that are ascertained by the National Forest Inventory, the carbon balance account also includes the soil and vundeswaldinventur plant material.

With its resolution to establish the Forest Climate Fund, the Federal government underscores the significance of our forest ecosystems as well as the positive effects of sustainable forest management and timber use for protection of the climate.

Foresters must take these future bundeswaldinvetur in growth conditions into account without knowing where and to what extent certain changes may take place.

The effect of the forest as a carbon sink depends on its storage capacity. Contact Content Legal information Imprint Search. That is approximately tonnes of carbon per hectare in of the aboveground and belowground biomass not including the litter layer and mineral soil.

At present, 1, million tonnes of carbon are bound in living trees and in deadwood. Changes in the forest area, tree growth and the way a forest is managed influence its storage capacity. The more CO2 is lastingly stored in the form of carbon, the less it burdens the atmosphere. Germany, the land of forests — forest area unchanged The forest habitat — more biological diversity in the forests The forest resources — timber stock at record high The forests as climate protectors — still a carbon sink Surveying the forest Background information.

The forests are exceedingly important for climate protection. The National Forest Inventory serves as the data basis for estimating the carbon stock for living biomass above and in the soil and for deadwood during the observation period from until Trees are long living and immobile, and forest stands are subjected to highly varying environmental and growth conditions during their lifespans.

In addition to the carbon stocks in the living biomass and in the deadwood in the forests that are ascertained by the National Forest Inventory, the carbon balance account also includes the soil and dead plant material.

Historic development of the forested area What exactly is a forest? In addition, they bind carbon dioxide and are thus a natural carbon sink. They prolong the storage of carbon that was already bound in the trees beyond their use duration until it is finally used for energy or organically decomposes as timber waste.

Trees need the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide CO 2 in order to grow, and therefore bind it within the timber. Statistical certainty Area covered by beech tree species or beech forest cover type What is a mixed forest?

The soil survey in the forest indicates that the litter layer and the mineral soil contain another million tonnes of carbon. The speed at which the climate is changing is problematic for the forests and forestry.

Is access to private forests permitted? The soil survey in the forest contributes to this. Previous image Next image. Overexploitation of the forests — no thank you! If, instead the forest loses more CO 2 than it absorbs, it is a carbon source.

The tree species composition of forests is one important approach to stabilizing and vitalizing the stands and preserving the functions of the forest.

The forests in Germany presently act as sinks and bundeswaldinnventur approximately 52 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere every year Dunger, K. Nationaler Inventarbericht DeutschlandKap.
