The Paris Climate Agreement and some US states have set targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions that include land management options. Carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere and sequestered in forests and wood products at varying rates, affecting greenhouse gas budgets. Forests are sustainable net sinks if there is a positive net balance of forest carbon uptake exceeding losses due to harvesting, wood product use and decomposition, and combustion by wildfire. The recent IPCC Special Report makes clear that halting GHG emissions from fossil fuels and industrial processes requires additional carbon sequestration by forests as part of an integrated set of strategies to keep global average temperatures from rising by more than 1.5 ֯C. In this Special Issue, we explore current research designed to assess the ecological and climate benefits and consequences associated with forests and their use as “Management Strategies for Greenhouse Gas Emissions Mitigation”.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.
