Abstract [en]

The Scanian woodfences has been determined by two mainly elements: Scania's composition of tree species, with a large element of deciduous forest, and the local building tradition which has more in common with the European continent than the Swedish tradition. By examining responses from ethnological question lists deriving from the first half of the 1900s, combined with literature studies, I have been able to deepen and broaden the knowledge behind the various fencing design. In addition I ́ve constructed maps which could illustrate their historical geographic distribution.

I have come to the conclusion that there was three main types of woodfences that was most common until the barbed wire was introduced in the early 1900s and later on replaced the elderly woodfences. Common for the three main types is that the base material was made out of Juniperus communis, this largely because of its durability against rot. The most timber demanding type are mostly made out of hardwood, sometimes in combination with spruce, which only existed in the northern provinces of Scania. The two other types made solely from Juniperus communis has been the ones more widely dispersed in Scania, except from the area of the open farmland in the south and west regions.
