Forestrich in resourcesPeopletrusted to performProductswe believe in

Some forests have large and unique assets that should be preserved. At Holmen we have procedures in place to identify such forests, within Holmen’s own holdings, when purchasing wood from other forest owners and through group certification of private forest owners.


Forests have high conservation value for various reasons. For Holmen these include:

 

  • Areas with high concentrations of endangered species and/or key biotopes and that the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency has classified as being of national interest for nature conservation
  • Forest along the tree line
  • Forest in water protection areas

 

In its forestry activities, Holmen takes account of the assets in these forests and they are included in our ecological landscape plans. The carrying principles in Holmen’s forest management are described in The art of growing forests. When harvesting in water protection areas, the requirements set by the municipality or County Administrative Board for such operations are followed.

 

Would you like more information about Holmen’s work with forests of high conservation value? If so, please contact Holmen Skog’s head office.
