Doctoral defence: On the human impacts and governance of large-scale tree plantations

"Mass production of wood on private lands for private goods at the expense of collective goods tends to undermine the exposed communities’ capability of living the lives they have reason to value – yet the forces that keep such systems so powerfully in place may be difficult to change."
