Forestry and environmental economics

Research on forest industries and forestry

Since the very beginning of the institute, forestry has been a central theme of our research. Our main topics include wood markets, private forest ownership, ecosystem services, forest industry import and export, markets and policy. Recently, the questions of climate change have become increasingly important, and currently we study, for example, how to fortify the carbon sinks in the forests and how to reduce emissions from the peatlands.

Twice a year, we publish a short term forecast about forestry and forest industries in Finland.
