Description: Increase the use of wood from highly productive wood plantations instead of wood from (semi-) natural forests.
Reference: PBL, 2010
Is implemented in: Forest management
Associated theme items: Forestry (Land use)Other land use (Land use)Terrestrial biodiversity (NB)


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 : Decreases the area impacted by forestry/logging

Component: Natural vegetation and carbon cycle
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.
