Nilsson, Per, 2013. Enkätundersökning hos skogsägare inom SCA Skog Norrbottens Förvaltningsområde. First cycle, G2E. Skinnskatteberg: SLU, School for Forest Management



This report has been done in collaboration with SCA Skog, Norrbottens Forest Management Area. The purpose of the survey is to try to find out what the forest owners who either live in Norrbottens Forest Management area or outside but has their forest holdings in the administrative area has the vision of SCA Forest and their forest services offered by the administration. But also to find out the presences of other timber buying players who procures timber in the administrative area. This study seeks to determine if there are deficiencies that may need changes or improvements to the prevailing conditions in Norrbottens management area.

The literature study is about how to design a questionnaire based on what you want to know and what to consider in order to eliminate the problem of constructing a questionnaire.

A questionnaire was sent to 400 randomly selected forest owners who have their forest holdings within SCA Forest Norrbotten Management Area. And of the 400, it was 181 respondents with 39 women and 138 men. The response rate was 44%.

Forest owners were asked to answer 17 questions where pieces of the questionnaire was divided into three parts. The first one a demographic part where the respondents indicate their gender, age, whether they live on the property, how many members, how large the acreage property is and how often it is harvested on the property. The second part illustrates the business conditions of the respondents. The final part is a matter of the respondents, who engaged SCA Skog sometime earlier, how satisfied they were with the results. On some issues, there was also room for comments.

Survey responses show that the average landowner is a man of 50-60 years of age and he does not live on his forest property, he is alone owner of the forest holdings and the area of the property is 101-200 hectares. Harvesting is done in every five-year period and the wood is sold it would sell as a timber felling rights. He is delivering to Sveaskog.

68% of respondents had not delivered timber to SCA Forest before. The reason for that is the higher prices from other and better relationship with another actor. The forest owners who have ever engaged SCA Skog are mostly satisfied with the cooperation.
