Clearcutting is often one of the largest transactions conducted by a forest owner. It is also the time when the foundation is laid for new stands that will cover the ground for a long time ahead.

Much has to be thought through in advance, both in terms of economy and forest management. The regeneration method selected is decisive in determining the harvesting process. The most common method of regeneration is planting, but the forest owner may prefer to sow, or to place seedlings under spruce shelter.


The need to protect the natural environment is self-evident in forestry. Harvesting is the process that has the greatest impact on the forest landscape. Which is why it is so important to consider nature conservation aspects as early as the planning stage.

The harvest normally generates considerable income for the forest owner. Careful planning and sound advice from a finance/tax expert can mean more money in the forest owner´s pocket.


Holmen Skog assists suppliers with advice on financial and forestry matters, as well as the practical harvesting process. Our personnel are highly experienced and well qualified.
