A study by Alice Favero, academic professional and associate director of graduate studies in the School of Public Policy, was mentioned in "Georgia Institute of Technology Study Looks at Impacts of Woody Biomass Demand," in Biofuels Digest on April 16, 2020.

The study evaluated the consequences of varying policy environments based on controlling carbon emissions and found that those that go beyond simple carbon taxes can promote "protection of natural forests by valuing the standing stock."

Excerpt: 

Using the global timber model (GTM) to assess how bioenergy demand affects the forestry sector, forestland and carbon sequestration, the researchers compared timber harvesting and management in more than 200 managed and natural forest ecosystems across 16 world regions under different bioenergy demand scenarios, including a no-bioenergy demand scenario, to isolate the role of management on forest carbon stocks.
