Slate: How Can My Trees Save the World?

From the “what’s on the client’s mind?” file: this week a writer for answers this question about trees and carbon sequestration:

My husband and I intend to plant some trees on our property this spring. We’d like to do our part in the fight against climate change, so we’re looking for trees that can sequester exceptionally large amounts of carbon. Can you recommend a specific species, one that’s the acknowledged champ at reducing greenhouse gases?”

The whole answer is an interesting read, although the writer is not an expert in the field by any means. Sound off, Dirt readers: have your clients been asking for more sustainable landscapes? What are they looking for these days? Let us know in the comments.
