Cost-effective means to halt the loss of biodiversity in forests

Reconciling biodiversity and forestry is challenging

Despite the objectives, the loss of biodiversity in Finland has not been halted. Demand for various wood products, and therefore the use of wood, is expected to increase in the future. The increase in logging may lead to a further reduction in the biodiversity of forests. Therefore, the strengthening of existing biodiversity measures and policy instruments is required, along with the development and introduction of new ones.
