Project Overview

This project analyzed inventory and harvest data from the Pisgah State Park in New Hampshire to quantify the relative quantities of storage and removals on the Park. Forest inventory data from a range of sources were assembled and analyzed for carbon storage and sequestration. Harvest volume data were assessed to quantify the amount of carbon removed in wood products from the Park. Scale slip data from trucks were used to quantify the emissions due to transport of material for a single sale. The results of this project were intended to support the New Hampshire Division of Forests and Lands in comparing the sources and sinks of carbon in the Park and the role of forest management in that.


Quantify the current carbon storage and sequestration rates on Pisgah State Park, the amount of carbon removed from the Park through harvesting operations from 2008 to 2020, and the amount of carbon emitted in transporting timber to mills from a single timber sale harvested from 2019 to 2021.
