From the article: 

"Although biomass combustion is often prioritized
as a means of energy recovery, conversion of smaller components
unsuitable for recycling into a biochar-based material with a very
high carbon content might be more effective in restoring carbon
storage on land."

And

Mass timber is a safer way to store carbon
than pumping CO2 underground and is a more useful and economically
viable option than burying logs in trenches under a thick
layer of soil for long-term storage or direct conversion of roundwood
into biochar"
