|Description:||Increase the use of wood from highly productive wood plantations instead of wood from (semi-) natural forests.|
|Is implemented in:||Forest management|
|Associated theme items:||Forestry (Land use), Other land use (Land use), Terrestrial biodiversity (NB)|
Associated policy response component
Effects of this policy intervention on components
Component: Forest management
Effect : Decreases the area impacted by forestry/logging
Component: Carbon cycle and natural vegetation
Effect : This intervention changes the regional C pools and fluxes. It limits the exploitation of (natural) forests and preserves the C budgets within these forests. In the plantations the C pools might become reduced.
Component: Terrestrial biodiversity
Effect : Terrestrial biodiversity is effected in two ways: 1) the area with forestry impacts will be smaller, and 2) the biodiversity value of plantations will be lower than (semi-)natural forests in which logging takes place.
