The Swedish government has set up 16 environmental goals for Sweden to achieve. One of
them is “Living forests”, which is the foundation for the “National strategy for the formal
protection of forests”. The “National strategy” puts the private forest owner at the centre of
attention in order to achieve the environmental goal “Living forests”. Adaptive Management
could help with the implementation of the “National strategy”. 9 qualitative interviews have
been done in order to examine how the communication between private forest owners and
responsible authorities works. The interviews give the private forest owners’ perspective, and
what they want the communication to be like, when it comes to conservation biology.
Communication, language, and how to deal with conservation biology have been the main
issues brought up during the interviews. The private forest owners also demand more
flexibility and a keener ear from responsible authorities. The private forest owners would like
a better knowledge of what is happening when it comes to conservation biology on their land.
The private forest owners and the responsible authorities do have similar goals for what they
want to achieve with the forest, but they disagree on how to achieve that goal.
