In the article “Forests: Carbon sequestration, biomass energy, or both?”, errors were introduced to the description of the resulting changes in forest carbon stock under two policy scenarios during the production process. Namely, under the penalty scenario, average stocks in 2100 is expected to increase by 95 GtCO2e instead of 140 GtCO2 that it is equivalent to 1.1 GtCO2e/year instead of 1.5 GtCO2e/year. Under the forest carbon rental scenario, average stocks in 2100 is expected to increase by 5.6 GtCO2e/year instead of 3.9 GtCO2e/year.
The overall findings of the study have not been affected by these reporting errors. The HTML and PDF versions of the paper have been updated.
