The Swedish Forest Agency is the Government's expert authority on forests and forest policy. Our mission is to work for a sustainable utilisation of the Swedish forests, in accordance with the guidelines given by the Parliament and the Government. The Swedish Forest Agency is the national authority responsible for matters relating to the forest. It strives to ensure that the nation’s forests are managed in such a way as to yield an abundant and sustainable harvest, while at the same time preserving biodiversity. The Agency also strives to increase awareness of the forest’s significance, including its value for outdoor recreation. The Agency has offices throughout the country. Its most important tasks are to give advice on forest-related matters, supervise compliance with the Forest Act, provide services to the forest industry, support nature conservation efforts, and conduct inventories.
