Dataset Overview

Carbon storage for all 5 IPCC carbon pools (in metric tons) and net growth of all live trees on forestland in the Northeast. These totals are calculated from FIA data using the pre-built queries. Specifically, the T103 and T025 query metrics.

Purpose

Trees grow to different sizes and at various rates depending on species, age, and site characteristics. This distinction allows for various tree layers to form over time, resulting in structural diversity. When trees photosynthesize at a rate greater than what is needed for general processes, they can store excess carbon as wood, increasing their total biomass.
