The role of reforestation in carbon sequestration

This article describes research on reforestation of cultivated lands and its effect on carbon sequestration in the US. It finds that soils store most of the carbon in ecosystems, and reforesting cultivated lands increases the carbon storage of topsoil. Carbon sequestration also doubles to triples in woody biomass after planting for at least 20 to 30 years.
