Publication Series: Book Chapter

Description: This chapter provides guidance for reporting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with entity-level fluxes from the forestry sector. In particular, it focuses on methods for estimating carbon stocks and stock change from managed forest systems. Section 6.1 provides an overview of the sector. Section 6.2 describes the methods for forest carbon stock accounting. Section 6.3 describes the methods for estimating carbon stocks and stock change from establishing and clearing forest. Section 6.4 describes methods for estimating carbon stocks and stock change from forest management. Section 6.5 describes methods for estimating carbon stocks and stock change from harvested wood products. Section 6.6 describes methods for estimating carbon stocks and stock change from urban forests (i.e., trees outside of forests). Finally, Section 6.7 describes methods for estimating emissions from natural disturbances including forest fires.
