Using Trees to Capture Carbon

Asked July 5, 2019, 2:52 PM EDT

What are the best trees to grow in the foothills of the Willamette Valley to capture carbon? What are the best fruit trees for the same area?
Based on the recent research paper* that states that the cheapest
way to sequester carbon worldwide, will you and can you publish a paper/fact sheet,and other materials
that will show Oregonians top trees to plant based on area, and how many trees
we need to plant to achieve Oregon's share of the global need for reforestation? And, can you publish a paper with a plan for maximum sequestration in OR by newly planted trees? Further, if you do not have the resources to do these things, then will you ask other experts and the Governor for those resources?
Please give this your most concerted attention.
