Preserving Sweden’s old-growth forests
Have you ever been in a real old-growth forest? An old-growth forest is very different from a modern production forest. In an old-growth forest you meet the “real” forest, the original, in all its richness and variety.
An old growth forest is not tidy, the trees do not grow in straight rows and they are not all of the same age. An old-growth forest is teeming with life; there are clearings, moss blankets, small forest streams and trees in various stages of their lifecycle.
Everywhere are lichens, mosses, bugs, plants, twigs and leaves. You can hear the sounds of tapping, chirping, water flowing and paws padding and it smells of… FOREST!
In an old-growth forest preserved by Naturarvet, all this life is protected forever in a natural cycle in which all organisms can fulfill their own important function. Naturarvet exists to give everyone an opportunity to participate and preserve Sweden’s last old-growth forests.
We are right now building this English version of our site. We are working on it, but there are still many sections that only exist in Swedish. We hope that you will appreciate our site and appologize for the “work in progress”.
