Figure 4.8: Relative importance of each of the 10 forest management alternatives in the total potential sequestration as given in Figure 4.7. These data give an indication of opportunities and do not necessarily represent national plans. For example, silvicultural practices in Japan generally do not accompany fertilization and the figure for Japan is probably an overestimate. Nevertheless it shows that opportunities vary among countries because of both the national situation, the mix of current forestry practices, and/or the historic management. One common recommendation of which measures would yield the largest carbon sequestration can therefore not be given (adapted from Nabuurs et al., 2000).
