New Jersey Audubon invites you to attend an educational and informative FREE talk by Rutgers Urban Forestry Program Outreach Coordinator and NJ Licensed Tree Expert Pam Zipse on “Carbon Defense Strategies and Your Forest.” All trees, in the forest and in the planted landscape, can contribute to carbon storage and sequestration goals and climate change resiliency. Healthy trees are more effective than unhealthy trees. This presentation will discuss the basics of how trees store and sequester carbon, how proper tree maintenance and management practices can help to optimize these benefits in trees and forests, and strategies for using trees and forests to address carbon defense goals.
