Do urban green spaces absorb more carbon than it takes to keep them up?

    I’m going to answer this on personal experience. I am a land steward for an urban green space in Vancouver and a student of environmental science. All different types of plant life absorb different amounts of carbon and this can depend on location, climate, seasons, old growth to new growth, trees, plants, etc. I can say that green space practice is to maintain the original integrity of the green space and by bringing any machinery in that would burn fuels to create carbon would be going against policy for most organizations when dealing with smaller spaces. Larger scale green spaces that are remote may be a different story but as far as urban green space it is uneccessary.
