Through a partnership between the Monongahela National Forest and West Virginia University called the West Virginia Restoration Venture, two white papers, a “technical” and a “general” version, have been finalized.  They both describe the influence of red spruce forest on organic soil carbon.  Slides excerpted from a fascinating webinar by Dominick DellaSala on 26 Feb 2014, showing the Mon Forest as #11 in the nation in terms of carbon storage.
