Carbon storage, Kyoto Protocol
The changing demands of consumers on timber markets, products, and amenities is creating unprecedented research in the valuation of non-timber products from forest owners. Both public and private owners of forest lands are beginning to explore the expanding markets into which the products of forests can be marketed. This has occurred before as businesses in the forest products market have searched for ways to bring returns to stockholders in a market known for its volatility, unpredictability, and constant changes over the last century. Now the opportunity to sell the goods and services delivered by standing forests has expanded as society and specifically governments have begun searching for innovative solutions to global climate change.
