Short summary
There is great concern about the role that forest ecosystems play in mitigating greenhouse gas emissions under future global-change scenarios. It is assumed that projected climate change will increase the decomposition rate of woody debris, but the magnitude of this increase is unknown. Across eastern US forests, we show that the residence time of downed woody debris may decrease by as much as 13% over the next 200 years, depending on various future climate-change scenarios and forest types.
