About this book

This report of a Nordic project on afforestation aims to provide inspiration to countries facing the challenges of afforestation by decribing the Nordic experience. Areas covered include: afforestation made by the state, by private landowners under the state's influence and by the landowners themselves. The objectives of afforestation in different periods and regions and the means used by state to influence landowners are examined, and the effects of the afforestation are evaluated.


The role of afforestation - when is more forest needed?; forests and forestry in Nordic countries - the forest resources as a a source for development; Denmark - from heathland reclamation to afforestation or marginalized farmland; Finland - more forest or open spaces?; Iceland - protecting native forests and introducing exotic sepcies; Norway - tree species conversion and planting of bogs; Sweden - forest rehabilitation and afforestation of marginalized farmland in Southern Sweden; final comments - lessons learnt regarding aims, means and implementation.
