Protect 'your own' forest plot

Here you can protect one or more earmarked forest plots in the Ekås oak-beech forest for the sake of the forest or yourself, or to celebrate someone or honor someone's memory. Below is a target map that is 20 X 21 squares and on the map corresponds to 26 880 square meters of a beech-dominated part of the broad-leaf forest in Ekås oak-beech forest.
Tip: On a computer, you can move the mouse pointer over the squares and see what title a square has and if it is linked, you can click on the square to open the link in a new window.

One plot is about 64 sqm and costs SEK 1,250 to earmark your gift for. When you order your plots, a unique gift certificate is automatically created with the coordinates of the forest plot(s). This is downloaded via a link in a payment confirmation email that is sent to you after payment.
Tip: The gift certificate indicates in bold text the denomination of the box and its center coordinates. Clicking on the denomination will open this page so the recipient can see what the plot looks like. Clicking on the coordinates will open a Google maps link, where the center point of the plot is marked, making it easy to find it..

  • Select the payment method and fill in the other details. If you want the gift certificate to be sent directly to your e-mail address, choose payment by swish or card. Click "Slutför" and complete the payment as instructed if you have chosen swish or card. If you have chosen to pay by invoice, follow the instructions in the order confirmation email.

Instructions for uploading an image

You can upload your own image covering one or more squares. Each square is 33×33 pixels. If you want a larger image than one square provides, you can order several squares next to each other. The image will be adapted to fit over more squares. For example, an order of 6 squares with 3 in width and 2 in height will result in an image that is pieced together to 99 X 66 pixels. If you upload an image with a 3:2 (width:height) ratio, the image will be correctly cropped and pieced together across the squares.

An image with a different format may be unfavorably cropped if the format of the uploaded image is not correctly adapted to your order of boxes. A logo with text will often be more squares in width than in height. Check the format of the logo before deciding how to put the squares together like a puzzle over the logo. A square logo/image will fit in one square but the resolution of the logo/image will not be the best. Choose multiple squares (e.g. 2 X 2 or 3 X 3 squares) if you want your square logo/image to be more visible.
