Aging America Trees and Medical Fees
In this Oct. 24, 2013 photo, Paul Nys points to the first signs of disease in an old-growth section of his forest that will help store carbon as part of the Forest Health-Human Health Initiative in Rainier, Ore. Nys and a dozen other timber-lot owners are hoping to help cover their medical expenses by selling carbon credits generated by their forest land. (AP Photo/Nigel Duara)
