This lab is designed to teach students forestry techniques while enabling them to see their carbon footprint in more tangible terms. Students first determine the amount of CO2 released by their lifestyle (their carbon footprint).  Students must then use forestry techniques to determine how many trees they would have to plant per year to offset their carbon footprint. This allows students to more easily see the impact of their daily choices while making forestry practices more relevant to the average student.
