If forests get carbon credits that they can sell would they be less likely to log them?

    Your idea of giving the forestry industry carbon credit-incentives to leave land unlogged is a great one. The main reason logging takes place is because our current system values the products of nature more than nature itself. Trees just “sitting” in a forest are seen to have potential value, but as timber. By focusing on trees’ value as carbon dioxide-sponges and subsidizing companies to leave them in place, or to donate portions of their properties as future wilderness, might encourage them to log less.
