Tunell, Erika, 2018. Bonitet samt belägenhet som prispåerkande faktorer för kalmark i regionen Bohus-Dal. First cycle, G2E. Skinnskatteberg: SLU, School for Forest Management



The purpose of this study is to find out how two variables affect the value of forest land by doing a linear regression analysis. The two variables that are studied are the site fertility of forest land and the distance between the forest land and a major city. It also studies what price buyers of forest estates have been willing to pay for the clear cut forest land.

The survey is based upon selling statistics of 29 forest estates that had been sold between 2016 and 2017. The data was made available by LRF Konsult and concern their area of business Bohus-Dal in the southwestern Sweden. The conclusion from these tests is that the price for clear cut forest land varies a lot. The distance between the forest land and a major city can explain almost 72 percent of the price. The site fertility of forest land can only explain about 9 percent of the price. There are many other variables that also affect the price of forest land.
