About the Science
- As part of a research project, students and faculty at SUNY-Environmental Science and Forestry have determined the precise combination of trees that would be most effective in reducing the level of greenhouse gases in the air around Syracuse. Team estimates that the tree combination could reduce carbon dioxide by fifty-seven-percent by the year 2046.
