Summary

The overall aim of the project is to device sustainable ways to achieve European and national level policies and practice in bioeconomy. This project will assess how forest management should be modified when targeting alternative desirable timber qualities and increasing flows of wood products while contributing to EU climate change mitigation goals. We seek to provide insights for setting carbon-neutral land-use and forestry management policies.
We will test two alternative general strategies that seek maximizing the climate mitigation benefit from forests while increasing the flow of biomass products: (i) optimal allocation of the biomass for different wood product categories, and (ii) optimal management plans (i.e., combination of management regimes). We will also perform an overall sustainability analysis to evaluate how the provision of forest biomasses and climate benefits can be reconciled with the maintenance of socially important forest ecosystem services and biodiversity values in the long-term.
