This is our presentation for the finalists' round in the 2013 Climate CoLab competition. This is in memory of Jonah Adels, who pushed us to take part.

Woody Agriculture is the intensive production of staple agricultural commodities using highly domesticated woody perennial plants; such as nut producing trees and bushes. This practice can sequester substantial CO2. Present estimates of the annual increase in atmospheric carbon are around 10 gigatons; if woody plants could be substituted for the traditional annual crops now being grown on 1/2 of world crop lands, they could fix at least 10 gigatons of carbon more per year than those annual crops, with no decrease in food production.
