UBC forestry research receives funding

UBC research into the impact of climate change on British Columbia’s forests and finding more sustainable forest management practices received funding today from the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS). UBC researchers will be working on four of the five projects that PICS announced funding for today. 

The UBC projects include:

  • Striking the right bioenergy balance: promoting healthier carbon stores in our forests and forest product streams
  • Estimating carbon storage and emissions from harvested wood products from B.C.
  • Developing environmental-response function of growth and mortality to forecast forest carbon stocks in B.C. under environmental change scenarios
