New Map Shows Size and Carbon Storage Capacity of Forests in U.S.

Gotta love confusing maps! WTF is this? Is red good because there are a lot of trees there, or is red bad because they are storing a lot of carbon that will be released upon their death? Did I miss something? I also never saw anything denoting canopy height. Also I doubt the validity of this map as the area of the SE I'm in I checked and it has it mapped as "No wooded mass" when there are forests all over the place competing with Walmarts and Targets and malls.
