PINEMAP integrates research, extension, and education to enable southern pine landowners to manage forests to increase carbon sequestration; increase efficiency of nitrogen and other fertilizer inputs; and adapt forest management approaches to increase forest resilience and sustainability under variable climates. The goal of the PINEMAP extension team is to disseminate emerging knowledge, practices, and PINEMAP decision support tools to enable corporate and non-corporate landowners to increase forest carbon sequestration, nitrogen fertilizer efficiency, and forest resilience under changing climate. North Carolina State University faculty are active members of PINEMAP. Visit PINEMAP's website and like PINEMAP on Facebook.
