The article discusses the incorporation of wood products into carbon trading schemes. Researcher Fabiano Ximenes pointed out that the inclusion of wood products in these schemes would make them a more attractive proposition for forest industries. He notes the several countries are able to include carbon in wood products in their national greenhouse gas inventories. He believes that a potentially more significant carbon sink is in wood products buried in landfills.
