Forest Management Solutions for
Mitigating Climate Change in Wisconsin: Are Trees the Answer?
November 11-12, 2008 - Stevens Point
- Global Climate
Change, Speaker: Carol Barford,
University of Wisconsin - Madison
- The big picture.
Why is this such an urgent problem that we must solve sooner rather than
of Climate Change on Forests, Speaker: David Mladenoff, UW-Madison
- What will be the
Social, Ecological and Economic impacts of global warming on our national,
regional and state forest resources? How can we begin to prepare for these
What is it and Why Should I Care? Speakers: Steve Hubbard and Scott Bowe
- The inputs and
outputs required to produce a finished forest product can be quantified
using life-cycle analysis. Studies of this type focus on carbon and energy
balances often showing how wood is a beneficial material over other product
House Gas Emissions through Biomass Substitution:
Speaker: Mark Knaebe, USFS, Forest Products Lab, Madison
- GHG emissions can be
reduced through the substitution of biomass for fossil fuels that emit more
GHG per functional unit. What are the opportunities and challenges
associated with this substitution? Is it a viable option?
House Gas Emissions Through Wildfire Behavior Modification.
Speaker: Jessica Holofsky, USFS, Seattle
- Wildland Fires and
Rx Fires are a major contributor to national and international GHG
emissions. What are some active forest and wildland fire management
strategies that can dramatically reduce CO2 emissions?
Preventing Green House
Gas Emissions Through Avoided Land Use Change:
Speaker: Amanda Cundiff, USFS State and Private
- Land use changes
from forest to non-forest uses releases forest stored GHGs into the
atmosphere. What public policies are needed to keep Forests in Forests?
Green House Gases Through Sequestration
- Speaker: Maria Janowiak, Research Forester Northern Institute of Applied
Carbon Science, USFS Houghton MI.
- Previous speakers
have evaluated the role of forests and forest products in preventing GHG
emissions through wood substitution, biomass substitution, modification of
wildfire behavior, and avoiding land use change. This talk considers the
role of forests and forest products in reducing GHG emissions.
Introduction to Programs and Markets for
Carbon and They Impact Forest Carbon Offset Projects
- Speaker: Allison Hellman
Policy Advisor, DNR, Div. of Forestry
command-and-control regulation has been the approach to regulating emissions
and discharge of pollution into the environment in the US. While effective
in achieving reductions in pollution, these acts prescribe technology-based
and performance-based standards to pollution abatement in ways that stifle
innovation and discourage the development of better, lower-cost
technologies. Market based instruments encourage the desired behavior
through market signals rather than through explicit directives for pollution
levels or control methods.
Markets: A New Revenue Opportunity for Land Owners
- Speaker: Dave Krog, CEO, AgraGate Climate Credits Corporation, West Des
- What Foresters and
Woodland owners should know about turning forests into carbon credits? You
can have your cake and eat it too.
Biomass Guidelines Developed for Wisconsin
- Speaker: Jane Severt, Executive Director, WI County Forests Association
- How much woody
biomass can be sustainably extracted from
without depleting the Forest for future generations? The Governors Council
on Forestry is looking for your input on these draft voluntary BMPs.
in Harvesting Equipment To Extract Woody Biomass from Wisconsin Forests
- Speaker: Stacy Wagler, Ponsse Corporation
- What is happening
around the world? The equipment and harvesting revolution... What you can
expect to see in a forest near you in the coming years. What are the costs?
