This document examines the potential to increase carbon sequestration in forests of the northeastern states through alternative management activities. The activities investigated include extending rotation ages of softwood forests beyond their economically optimal rotation age, harvesting and re-stocking currently under-stocked, but mature, forests, conserving forests in riparian zones, and additional thinning. The first three of the analyses are conducted across the region, while the final analysis (the potential for increasing thinning to enhance carbon sequestration) is done as a case study.
