Description: Increasing the share of produced wood yielded with Reduced Impact Logging (RIL) practices instead of conventional logging practices.
Reference: PBL, 2010
Is implemented in: Forest management
Associated theme items: Forestry (Land use)


Associated policy response component

Component: Land and biodiversity policies
Page: Land and biodiversity policies/Forestry sector

Effects of this policy intervention on components

Component: Forest management
Effect : RIL affects the forest management in two ways: (i) Less land being used for forestry as it increases the harvest efficiency (due to less losses); (ii) less available forest residues that could, for example, be used for energy production.

Component: Natural vegetation and carbon cycle
Effect : RIL can change the volume of the C pools in the soil and vegetation pools and reduces the human induced land-use change emissions.

Component: Terrestrial biodiversity
Effect : The impacts on biodiversity is lower using RIL practices instead of the conventional practices. This because (i) less forets will be used (higher biodiversity on large scale); (ii) a better and faster regrowth of the harvested forests, also thus a long-term increasing biodiversity also within these forests.
