New Zealand's Environment Reporting Series: The Ministry for the Environment and Statistics New Zealand
New Zealand’s indigenous and exotic forests absorb and store carbon from the atmosphere through photosynthesis. As forests grow, the carbon stored in them increases. These carbon stocks help offset greenhouse gas emissions from sources such as agriculture, energy production, and transport.
Column headings: type = vegetation type of forest vol_tC = volume of carbon in tonnes
This dataset relates to the "Estimated forest carbon stocks" measure on the Environmental Indicators, Te taiao Aotearoa website.
