Climate curious: We answer your questions about climate change

In this aerial view of forests, trees stretch to the horizon.
In our first round of questions, we answer a query from Mike Larson, of Ellsworth, Wis.: "What type of trees are best to plant in our region to capture the most amount of carbon?" Trees can help address climate change because they take in carbon dioxide and store it. And one expert says, the answer to Larson's question is very simple: Wood is good.
