The Swedish legislation regarding forestry, the Forestry Act from 1994, states that forestry should promote forests’ production and environmental values equally. Simultaneously extracting biomass resources for renewable materials and products while preserving and enhancing forest environments and biodiversity is a challenging task.

In this paper, the balancing question is problematized with focus on what items and relationships to include in forest models with a special focus on carbon budgets.

The results show that the biodiversity aspect is more difficult to capture in the models than the production data.
