Trees absorb CO2 as they grow so the more forests we plant the more CO2 we can absorb. When wood is used as a construction material the CO2 that has been absorbed is "locked up" within the wood for as long as the wood is in use. There are many innovative ways of using material derived from trees to help combat the effects of climate change.

Join Staff from Forest Research, Forestry Commission Scotland, and students from Moray House School of Education to learn about the natural partnership between wood and CO2.
