Andersson, Anders, 2018. Vad tycker fastighetsägare i Götaland om skog på obrukad åkermark?. First cycle, G2E. Skinnskatteberg: SLU, School for Forest Management



Due to the fact that profitability has decreased in agriculture, there is currently a lot of unused farmland. It is often the smallest fields that are left unmanaged because they are not considered to be cost-effective in agricultural production. Many landowners want to plant seedlings on their unused farmland, while some think open landscapes should remain open. This is not a new phenomenon. During the 1960s large areas of farmland were planted with spruce. Today, these plantations are today ready for final felling.

A response rate of 47.4 percent was obtained on a survey that was sent to 399 landowners asking about planting seedlings on unused farmland. One goal of the survey was to examine the main arguments for, and against this practice. Another aim of this study was to investigate if different groups of people were more positive than others regarding forest plantations on farmland.

In general, landowners living in a landscape dominated by agriculture were more positive towards planting trees on farmland than landowners living in a landscape dominated by forest.
