Abstract [en] : The possibility of forestry to reduce the environmental effects is the focus of this essay. The purpose is to analyze the possibilities and difficulties of including carbon sequestration projects from forestry in carbon trading systems. Further a calculation of the cost of sequestering one tonne of carbon in Swedish forests is conducted. Increased demand for wood in production and as a substitution for fossil fuels requires measures within forestry that increase the growth and biomass. Increasing pressure to reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has led to the inclusion of carbon sinks in the Kyoto protocol. Main conclusions show that the cost of sequestering one tonne of carbon dioxide through fertilization of Norway spruce in Sweden range between 13,4-20,6 SEK, for traditional forestry the cost range between 14,3-17,6 SEK depending on the discount rate. The results show that carbon sinks possibly could serve as a cost-effective tool to reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
