    Does a tree stop absorbing CO2 when its fully grown?

    A farmer suggested cutting down fully matured trees as they no longer absorbed Co2or gave off oxygen to the atmosphere.

    To my limited knowledge the CO2 oxygen doesn`t change. If it did why the furor about the Sth American forrests being the lungs of the world?

    No eggy you are getting confused with older pees.
    I'm not finding that mature trees stop absorbing CO2, just that when the go dormant and the leaves drop they do. I am surprised that a farmer would suggest cutting a tree down for that reason and not something like the tree is decayed and dead. Farmers usually tend to want to keep things alive and growing no matter what.
