Burchett co-sponsors the bill which will give incentives for the use of wood products as carbon separation devices.
The bill has three parts: Plant more trees in urban areas to help reverse deforestation. Grow more wood in existing forests and make them more resilient to insects, diseases and catastrophic wildfires.
And store more carbon by giving incentives for innovative building practices with a sustainable building tax credit.
President Trump first announced that the U.S. would be joining the Trillion Trees Initiative in Switzerland and reiterated this pledge during the 2020 State of the Union address.
