Provisioning services, regulating services and tree diversity show synergetic relations indicating compatibility between mitigation and conservation potential, and thus challenging sustainable forest management systems. • Unsustainable logging practices can be critical for ecosystem service multifunctionality reaching values only slightly higher than in successional forests. • Above-ground carbon stocks can serve as “umbrella service” for the conservation of other ecosystem services.
