Sorry but here will only be a short summary, read the Swedish blog for more information.
Last Saturday I went to Bredsjö in the deep woods of central Sweden. Ylva Lindberg had arranged a day with very interesting lectures regarding our forests and (the lack of ) biological diversity.
First out was the author Sten Björnulfson. He was talking about his book “Rösterna i skogen” and the loss of history, and memories that the logging causes in the woodland where he has his cabin.
Then it was time for Sebastian Kirppu to deliver hard fact about the situation and the not so bright future for our woods if things don’t change very soon. Sebastian have deep knowledge and understanding of the ecological systems of our forests, he is also very good at explaining the situation.
Last but not least out was Mikael Karlsson from Silvaskog who gave a very interesting lecture about continuous cover forestry (the Lübeck model). He was also able to show that this method also is superior economically.
Four hours went very fast and I think that we could have continued the discussion for an hour or two more without any problem. Many thanks to Ylva and all the people that made this possible.
