Data from: Opportunity assessment for carbon and resilience benefits on natural and working lands in North Carolina

Public

  • These datasets show the biophysical extent of reforestation, restoration, and conservation opportunities for on-the-ground management actions for natural and working lands that sequester/store carbon and support habitat and community resilience in North Carolina. Management actions include conservation of existing forest land (including forests managed for harvest), reforestation, coordinated flood-related buyouts and floodplain restoration, and protection of coastal salt marsh migration corridors. Many of these data layers were used to estimate geographic scope, resilience potential, carbon sequestration and storage potential, and co-benefits for many of the recommendations in the North Carolina Natural and Working Lands Action Plan. A StoryMap was also developed to share these maps and other information related to the Natural and Working Lands Action Plan; it can be found at: https://storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/ea97fbe9c7d74be988f5fc52075e009a

    The datasets were developed as part of an opportunities assessment focusing on all lands where a recommended action is biophysically and ecologically feasible. There is no consideration of social or economic constraints. Therefore, all quantitative estimates (of geographic area, carbon storage and sequestration, etc.) are expected to be significantly higher than what will be observed. This assessment provides potential scale, not realistic estimates.
