First, the study found carbon uptake to be significantly less than previously thought...and nowhere near wot we'll need from trees to offset our new coal plants.
Second, the study found that the highest levels of carbon uptake come from fairly massive amounts of fertilizer and water for the trees. Yikes!
Before all you carbon marketers go jump out the window, let's reserve judgment until there's more clarity on regional variations of this theme.
Recent work in the tropics, for example, shows trees doing famously at their assigned carbon uptake tasks.
So, mebbe it's just trees in the temperate zones that cain't get'r done.
