The objective of this study was to contribute with suggestions of nature preservation managements of selected forest objects of high nature values managed by the Swedish state-owned forest company Sveaskog. Many forests with high natural potential are relatively rare today due to modern forestry, where wood production is the main purpose. Sveaskog’s policy is to consider and to priority nature conservation on valuable objects. This assessment includes objects that in the future may develop into nature reserves. By identifying key objects of high nature values in the database of Sveaskog, 29 of 69 objects were selected for further field studies in the survey in the area of Hultsfred, Vimmerby and Växjö County. Finally, 19 objects were selected by various reasons. Based on the biological requirements of a number of observed vulnerable species, management strategies in order to improve the flora and fauna at the sites were proposed. From the field studies I consider the majority of the objects were in a relatively good state for preservation of high nature values. However, at a number of sites the ingrowth of spruce has to be reduced and at other sites the amounts of dead wood has to increase. Conclusively, the majority of the studied forest sites of Sveaskog are in a good state for nature preservation, although some need an improved management.
