Table 3 Description of the intensification scenarios in terms of the management applied to individual stands

From: Carbon costs and benefits of France’s biomass energy production targets

Scenario code Scenario name Number of simulations Management of
Actively managed plots Overstocked plots Harvest-delayed plots Unexploitable plots
‘BaU’ Reference 1 Harvest at current clearcut diameter; thinning at current thinning ratio Harvest at current clearcut diameter; no thinning No harvest; no thinning No harvest; no thinning
‘Ov Extra mobilization of overstocked forests 10 scenarios applied to 10 to 100% of the overstocked forests Harvest at current clearcut diameter; thinning at current thinning ratio Harvest at current clearcut diameter; thinning at current thinning ratio No harvest; no thinning No harvest; no thinning
‘D’ Extra mobilization of harvest-delayed forests 10 scenarios applied to 10 to 100% of harvest-delayed forests Harvest at current clearcut diameter; thinning at current thinning ratio Harvest at current clearcut diameter; no thinning Harvest; no thinning No harvest; no thinning
‘M’ Extra mobilization of actively managed forests 10 scenarios reducing the clearcut diameter by 1 to 10 cm Clearcut diameter lowered with respect to current clearcut diameter; thinning at current thinning ratio Harvest at current clearcut diameter; no thinning No harvest; no thinning No harvest; no thinning
‘A’ Extra mobilization of all forests 10 scenarios combining respectively the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, …, 10th scenario of ‘O’, ‘D’ and ‘M’ Clearcut diameter lowered by 1-10 cm with respect to current clearcut diameter; thinning at current thinning ratio Harvest at current clearcut diameter; thinning at current thinning ratio Harvest; no thinning No harvest; no thinning
