Project: Reforestation Hub

"This map shows county-level estimates of the potential area of new forests (“area of opportunity” in units of acres) and how much carbon those areas could capture (in units of metric ton of carbon dioxide per year). We focused on finding lower cost and more feasible options for restoring forest cover, which included lands already in a natural land use, more marginal agricultural lands, or areas where trees have the potential to provide high additional co-benefits beyond carbon capture, such as flood mitigation or urban cooling."
