Forest conservation is better for the climate than the use of wood: Study by the Max Planck Institute refuted

In February 2020, the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena published a study, which was intended to show that sustainably managed forests protect the climate better than unmanaged forests. The most important contribution of sustainably managed forests in the temperate climate zone would be the replacement of fossil fuels by the energetic use of wood. The findings of the study by Prof. Ernst-Detlef Schulze and colleagues published in Global Change Biology – Bioenergy have now been refuted by three independently produced publications in the same journal.
