Recent studies show that carbon sequestered by trees on agricultural land is not well accounted for. If it was, researchers argue in a new study: “Global Tree Cover and Biomass Carbon on Agricultural Land: The contribution of agroforestry to global and national carbon budgets,” total carbon estimates from agricultural land could be more than four times higher.
