Dear newsgroup readers
I am trying to find updated information about the role of trees (and in 
particular: fast-growing tree plantations) in reducing atmospheric CO2 

I really believe that fast growing species can sequester much more CO2 then 
other species; experimental finding demostrates that the Net Primary 
Production of a tree plantation is growing when the trees are young until the 
respiration becom too high; can you please give me your opinion about this?  

Thank you for your help
