University of Vermont forest ecologist Bill Keeton is engineering trees to look and act like old-growth forests – and his new findings in Enhanced carbon storage through management for old-growth characteristics in northern hardwood-conifer forest has promising implications for storing carbon in the fight against climate change.

NPR’s national program Here & Now sent a reporter to visit UVM's research forest with Keeton, who is a Gund Fellow and RSENR professor. Listen to the story here, (at 5:10 in the broadcast). The research was also covered by WBUR in BostonVermont Public Radio, New Hampshire Public Radio, the NRDC website, and other outlets.
