Shelterbelts' Carbon capture potential touted

A new app developed by researchers at the University of Saskatchewan aims to promote the planting of shelterbelts on farms so that farmers can make money off their trees. 

U of S researchers helping farmers create sustainable shelterbelts

Research into the use of shelterbelts as tools farmers can use to mitigate greenhouse gases. Through the Agricultural Greenhouse Gases Program that is now in its second phase (AGGP2), work is being done to create a web page that would help landowners plan their shelterbelts and know how much carbon is being sequestered.
