Potential Carbon Sequestration and Revenue from Timber and Carbon Credits for Landowners of West Virginia Abandoned Mine Lands


  • Bouquot, Chris
  • Sperow, Mark


An optimal forest rotation model estimates potential value from timber and carbon for owners of WV abandoned mine lands (AMLs). An OLS regression provides merchantable volume and carbon density for six forest types which could sequester 0.41 Tg of carbon per year on approximately 33,800 hectares of AMLs.
