  • Unused land can give the forest new life

    SLU researcher Mats Dynesius believes pine forests on non-productive land – that is, land with very slow growth that is therefore not put to use – could be a sanctuary for disadvantaged forest species. With SCA’s help, he is re-creating living environments with dead and damaged pines and studying what benefits they can provide for various beetles. “There are unutilized opportunities for nature conservation on non-productive land,” Mats says.

  • Smart decision support for harvesting is good for the environment and cuts costs

    Using the new system for forwarding optimization, SCA’s site planners can develop smart proposals that help to transport the timber out of the forest in the most efficient manner possible. It is good for the environment, as it helps to avoid damage to the terrain, and also saves money.

  • Nature conservation across company boundaries

    SCA and Holmen are cooperating to create a forest trail with a focus on nature and cultural conservation in a area with first-class forests and high conservation values. The trail is part of Holmen’s “Kunskapsskog” and encompasses SCA’s voluntary set-asides in Kunnådalen in Ångermanland, Sweden.
