Presumably, the largest possible carbon storage compartment in any imaginable garden would be a large tree. Due its sheer size, the tree has the capacity to go through more carbon dioxide and release more oxygen, thus helping the environment. This proves how crucial it is that trees are preserved, despite the sheer amount of forests that get destroyed in place of new property developments or business ventures. Maple trees, hemlocks and white pines are probably the longest living trees and can outlive humans.
In terms of burning the carbon storage compartment for fire timber to put on either your chimnea or a bonfire, the sugar maple tree’s bark is one of the longest lasting you can find. It would be beneficial to stock up on some sugar maple bark if you can source it for your wood stove to burn in your garden or at an event that requires a bonfire. The tree is native to the forests of North-eastern North America and often reaches heights of up to 115 ft tall. The average 10-year-old sugar maple tree is approximately 16 ft tall.
