Jussi Lintunen and Jussi Uusivuori show in their winning article that an increase in the use of wood, despite it not being emission free, is optimal. However, this is so only if the biomass stock first increases. A subsidy on forest growth and tax on harvest leads to forest owners postponing their harvest, which increases biomass stock and carbon sequestration. As the rotation approaches its maximum level of sustainability, the harvest yield will increase and price on roundwood will fall, so that it can become optimal to use roundwood in energy generation.
