Forest management in order to promote social and aesthetic values in a recreation area in the City of Trollhättan (English)
Abstract [en]

Over 80% of Sweden's population lives in urban areas, and half of the country's forest visits will thus be in urban woodlands. Social values ​​- how the individual experiences the forest, and the impact of the forest visits on individual health and well-being, are pointing to the importance of managing the urban woodlands.

When there comes to the cultivation of the urban woodlands there are usually many opinions to consider.

This study aims to investigate the various opinions on the use and forestry in an urban recreation area in ​​the City of Trollhättan. The study addresses both general and in four cases specific suggestions on management methods.

Data was obtained from both quantitative and qualitative study through survey, interviews and discussions with the users of the recreation area.

Trollhättan's goal with the recreation area is to make it accessible to local residents. The users are mainly influenced by the accessibility therefore clearings and thinnings are appreciated. Clear cuts should be avoided, but can be used as a method if logging residues are removed afterward.

Variation is important for the specific areas, the focus is laid on hardwood species. Where hardwood is missing the focus should be to create old and sparse forest.
