Carbon Sequestration

“Carbon sequestration is the general term used for the capture and long-term storage of carbon dioxide. Capture can occur at the point of emission (e.g. from power plants) or through natural processes (such as photosynthesis), which remove carbon dioxide from the earth’s atmosphere and which can be enhanced by appropriate management practices.”

Australia’s Chief Scientists discovered that forests are more than 10 times more effective in storing carbon dioxide than grasslands.
