Abstract

Sequestering carbon in forests and wood products is an inexpensive way to reduce the atmospheric carbon concentration. However, its full potential is not utilized in present climate policies. Optimizing sequestration, while continuing to harvest wood for materials and energy, could reduce the...

Abstract

Mixed-species forests can have higher productivity, in terms of wood volume, than monospecific forests. In addition, higher tree species richness has been found to positively correlate with multiple ecosystem services and functions. Surprisingly, stem quality as one of the most important factors...

Abstract

This dissertation aims to develop the economics of even-aged Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) management. In our economic-ecological model, a detailed process-based forest growth model is connected to an economic description of stand management. The process-based growth model is able to describe...

Abstract

In this article, we explore how forestry scientists have promoted and defended particular definitions of economic sustainability as a response to socio-economic challenges. Drawing on an analysis of Finnish forestry textbooks, we discuss the evolving conceptualizations in terms of co-production of...

Abstract

One of the most fundamental questions in forest economics is how to divide forestland between productive and conserved land. In this study, voluntary land conservation by private forest owners is analyzed in two cases: first, in a case in which access to conserved forest is closed; and second, in a ...
