Publication: Effects of intensified silviculture on timber production and its economic profitability under changing climatic conditions

The aim of this study by Routa et al. from LUKE was to examine how intensified silviculture affects timber production and its economic profitability based on forest ecosystem model simulations. The study was conducted on Norway spruce and Scots pine stands located on medium-fertile upland forest sites under middle boreal conditions in Finland, under current climate and minor climate change.

Publication: Sustainability impacts of increased forest biomass feedstock supply

Sustainably managed forests provide renewable raw material that can be used for primary/secondary conversion products and as biomass for energy generation.

Tuomasjukka et al from EFI evaluated the economic, environmental and social sustainability impacts of making the potentially available timber available with current and technologically improved value chains.

Their publication ‘Sustainability impacts of increased forest biomass feedstock supply – a comparative assessment of technological solutions’ in the International Journal of Forest Engineering is now available open access:
