Environmental consideration in regeneration felling
The inventory concerns primarily amount of standing trees left for conservation purposes and volume of dead wood left in forests.
Results of the environmental consideration are presented from the Swedish Forest Agency inventory on regeneration monitoring (formerly called Polytax P5/7). The inventory is based on random samples carried out from all the reports of notified areas of final felling and application for permits for final felling of montane forest.
Swedish Forest Agency has since the early 1960s gathered information about quality of the regrowth, and followed up environmental considerations in regeneration felling since the early 1990s.
