Kind of. Forests suck CO2 through photosynthesis, so in that way they are a CO2 sink. However, they store that carbon within themselves; their bark, leaves, and roots all contain the carbon that they absorb. So, in the sense that somebody who converts something made of carbon into CO2 has a positive carbon footprint, you could say that converting CO2 back into other carbon forms is a negative carbon footprint. Just remember that forests are CO2 banks; the carbon is still there, just in a different form.
