Worth Knowing: does mechanical site preparation cause increased carbon emissions?

Welcome to a lunchtime lecture where Monika Strömgren, researcher at the Department of Soil and Environment, will talk about the latest research on the impact of forestry on soil carbon dioxide emissions.

On average, there is more carbon in the soil than in the trees in the Swedish forests. There is concern that forestry activities such as soil preparation and stump removal may lead to the release of soil carbon into the atmosphere. In the last Worth Knowing lecture of the autumn, Monika Strömgren talks about research that shows that soil preparation in Swedish forestry does not increase soil carbon dioxide emissions.

Soup is served outside the studio from 12.00. The lecture starts at 12.15. Please note that food is not allowed in the Studio.

If you are unable to attend, the lecture will be streamed live. The lecture will also be available on SLU Play afterwards.

Worth knowing

Worth knowing is the SLU University Library’s popular science lunchtime lecture series. Here, exciting and recent research results from SLU are presented. We offer a light lunch, and after the lecture listeners have the opportunity to ask questions.
