Private forest owners´ propensity to precommercial thinning in the area of Gudrun : A qualitative interview study (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine how small-scale private forest owners

make decisions regarding pre-commercial thinning. In 2015 it is ten years ago

since the storm Gudrun hit the southern parts of Sweden and now large areas are

in need of pre-commercial thinning. This study is built upon qualitative

interviews with seven small-scale private forest owners with forest properties in

the county Kronoberg. The respondents were chosen by the model

SKOGSÄGARPROFILENTM (forest owner profile).

The results of the interviews showed that five categories: ownership, the storm

Gudrun´s impact, silviculture, forestry contacts and driving force was important.

How will their purpose and aim affect the pre-commercial thinning? Personal

interests, and expectations of the next generation to take over, are purposes this

study has found. Furthermore, when pre-commercial thinning is not carried out

or postponed, the silviculture has got lower priority, and other chores higher

priority. Lack of knowledge might be one issue. If so, a contact with someone

with this knowledge is important for starting up the pre-commercial thinning.

Key words: Gudrun clearing, pre-commercial thinning, personal interest, net of

contacts, private forest owners, change-of generation, “forest owner profile”.
