Carbon Sequestration
Putting a Value on the Ecosystem Services Provided by Forests in Canada:
Case Studies on Natural Capital and Conservation

Natural Capital Valuation:
"Long Tusket Lake provides an excellent example of the many societal benefits provided by the Acadian forest. Significant carbon storage and sequestration is provided by the mix of hardwood and softwood forests. Nitrogen dioxide, ozone and other non-carbon atmospheric pollutants are also significantly reduced, while the wetlands within the property help provide flood control for downstream communities. As a result, the Acadian forest is found to be one of the more valuable forest types from a natural capital perspective, providing approximately $26,250 in annual benefits per hectare per year (based on the Long Tusket Lake property)."
