Trees and Bogs: Carbon Storage

Cutting down trees can be good for the environment is the title of this BBC News video which describes a "massive tree felling operation that has been going on in the vast Kielder Forest of Northumberland for the last few weeks."

The idea is not cutting down all trees but trees that were planted over a particular kind of ecosystem, bogs or mires as they are called In England. The carbon storage capacity of bogs is large as you will learn.

Here is the BBC's Justin Rolatt's report. The video is 3m 02s long.
