It is important for Bergvik Skog to achieve good results through dialogue with representatives of other interests in areas other than the conservation of biodiversity.
In many geographies, Bergvik Skog is the dominant landowner, which provide for many contacts with different people. It is important for Bergvik Skog to achieve good results through dialogue with representatives of other interests in areas other than biodiversity conservation. Bergvik Skog’s guidelines give room for reorienting the general considerations taken at all forest operations. In the case of final fellings involving sites of particular importance to local stakeholders, Bergvik Skog offers public consultations, e.g. recreational areas, swimming areas etc.
The work of visualizing social values in our forests is also about increasing interest in forests and building knowledge about forests. One part of this is Bergvik Skog’s Facebook page Nyfiken på Skog (Curious about Forests), which is also available on our Swedish website. We also contribute financially and make available some of our land for the organization Skogen i skolan (The forest in the school). We see the organization as an important investment for the future – to create knowledge about forests in children, but above all to raise their curiosity.
