In Holmen’s book “The art of growing forests” you can read about why the Swedish forests look like they do and why they are managed in a certain way. The book puts forestry in a historic and global context, and describes the possibilities offered by sustainable forest management.


The art of growing forests is partly a revised version of the book “Guidelines for sustainable forest management”, but the first section is brand new.


The book is mainly written for Holmen’s employees, customers and entrepreneurs, but can also serve as inspiration for other forest owners. It is available both in print and as pdf, in English and Swedish.
