The multi-actor network for sustainable management and resilience of planted forests
CARTON (“optimisation of carbon traits”) is a collaborative project coordinated by INRAE (ANR project, 2020-2025). This project aims to identify European tree species that offer optimal soil carbon sequestration capacity, rapid tree growth and adaptation to climate change.
Sustainable forest management plays a key role in climate mitigation strategies. This is due to the carbon sequestration potential of forests and their provision of raw materials that can substitute materials with higher carbon footprints.
Two videos (in French) aimed to promote better understanding of the phenomena responsible for climate change and their impacts on forests.
