Many myths are being perpetuated by the timber industry: the more forests we cut down, the better for the climate. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Here we debunk the most important myths that lobbyists are using to make us feel good about using products from forestry.

  1. Intensive forestry is good for the climate
  2. Young forests sequester carbon, mature forests do not
  3. Clear-cutting is the best way to manage forests
  4. Biodiversity is less important than the climate
  5. There has never been so much forest in Sweden
