Swedish Forest Agency
Laws and regulations
The Swedish Forest Agency work to implement the forest policy. Supervision of the Forestry Act is an important part of upholding the legislation. If you are uncertain about the demands placed on your forests by the Forestry Act, please contact the forest officer in your district.
The Swedish Forest Agency is a statistical agency and we are responsible for three forest statistical areas included in The Official Statistics of Sweden; "Forestry production", "Employment in forestry" and "Environment and social values in forestry". We also produce statistics from other investigations.
