# Oil Reserves

From Open Source Ecology

- Largest is Venezuela at 300B barrels. [1]
- Use is 100M per day [2]
- Sustainable harvest of forest is 1% per year, or one ton. Clear cut is 100 tons/acre [3]
- Agreed? 30 cf not growth in forests [4]. 1 cf is 100 lb [5]. Yes, checks out.
- 1 ton wood is 120 gallons (3 barrels) of oil [6]
- 1 barrel is 300 lb so a ton would be 7 barrels [7]
- There are 10 billion acres of forest. [8]
- There are 1.2 trillion gallons of oil harvestable sustainably from wood every year. 30 trillion barrels. Annual use of oil is 35 billion barrels [9]
**Every year we could harvest all of current oil regeneratively from forests**
- Regenerative forestry careers anyone?
