Forestowners attitudes regarding logging residues in southern Sweden (English)
Abstract [sv]

Skogen har under lång tid använts som värmekälla. Genom att ta tillvara på grot (GRenar Och Toppar) vid slutavverkningar bidrar skogsägaren med förnybar energi som minskar beroendet av fossila bränslen. Denna studie behandlar attityder gällande uttag av grot vid slutavverkningar. Studien utfördes som en enkätundersökning bland skogsägare och skogsinspektorer anställda inom Södra.

Studien visar att det är oron för näringsuttag från skogen och risk för körskador som är de största faktorer som gör att skogsägare har en negativ attityd gällande grotuttag vid slutavverkning. Studien påvisar vikten av att  kunskapsnivån behöver öka hos skogsägarna gällande grotuttag och dess effekter.

En attitydförändring gällande grotuttag behövs för att säkra framtida potentiella uttag. De konsekvenser som attityderna kan ge är att det inte blir tillräckliga mängder grotuttag och att de mål Sverige sätter upp i framtiden därmed inte kan nås.

Abstract [en]

Forests have been used as an energy source for a long time. By taking advantage of logging residues at final harvesting, the forest owners contribute with renewable energy that reduces dependence of fossil fuels. This study concerns the attitudes regarding the collection of logging residues. The study was conducted as a survey which was answered by forest owners and employees that work with counseling regarding forestry.

The survey shows that the major obstacles that gives negative attitudes of logging residues is the concern about the nutrient removal from the forest and damage dealt by machinery. The study demonstrates the importance of knowledge, and the needs to increase the forest owners knowledge about logging residues and its effects.

A change of attitude concerning logging residues is needed to secure the future collection of logging residues. The impact that attitudes can give is that there will be insufficient quantities of logging residues in the future.
