[Extract] Big trees are among the oldest and largest of all living organisms and store much of a forest's carbon, locking it up safely rather than releasing it as heat-trapping greenhouses gases. In general they comprise less than 2 per cent of a forest's trees, but due to their wide energy-absorbing canopies, they can make up to 25 per cent of a forest's total biomass.
