Voluntary set-asides and forest land under forest management certification schemes

Here you will find statistics on areas where the landowner has voluntarily decided not to carry out measures that could damage natural values, cultural environments or social values. That is to say, without decision or compensation from the state. Here you also find how much of the productive forest land is certified in accordance with PEFC or FSC.

The data are collected through the processing of geographic information in combination with questionnaires to the certificate owners of PEFC and FSC and to individual forest owners.
The survey is part of the Official Statistics of Sweden and has product number JO1404.
