Book Launch about the Climate Forest

The Climate Forest

The new book "The Climate Forest" is an important input to the ongoing climate discussion. The new book wishes to challenge misunderstandings and prejudice about the forest and its role in combating climate change. The book clarifies how the forestry is an important tool, which can be used in the fight for an improved climate and a higher level of biodiversity. Thus, the book suggests a paradigm shift in the debate about Danish forestry.

The authors behind the initiative

The initiator of the book project is former Chairman of the Forestry Association in the Western part of Jutland, Mr. Bendt A. Sloth.

Co-authors are Palle Madsen, former professor at the Forest and Landscape College at the University of Copenhagen, Anders Tærø Nielsen, Researcher at the University of Copenhagen, and Per Hilbert, former Forester and Head of the Secretariat at Danish Forest Owner Cooperatives (DFOC).

Definition of "a climate forest"

The authors explain that the climate challenge and reduction of CO2 is best addressed by developing of so called  "climate forests". The climate forests are distinguished, among other things, by being sustainable and having a high growth and variety of trees, which ensures a high binding of CO2, as well as biodiversity is best ensured.

You can buy the book at book stores for 189 DKK. It is published by the authors themselves. ISBN is 978-87-971672-0-5. You can also download the book (in Danish) from this page, where there is additional information and a video film about the book: http://www.skovdyrkerne.dk/om-os/nyheder/ny-klimabog/
