Hammar, John, 2009. Metodutveckling för planering och genomförande av dikesrensning med moderna metoder. First cycle, G2E. Skinnskatteberg: SLU, School for Forest Management



“Development of methods for the planning and implementation of ditch clearing with modern methods”, is a long title for an exam work but that is what this report describes.
In Sweden, we have a limited area available, and with the present development with increasing market oil prices, and enormous forces on the renewable energy sources, we need every hectare possible to protect the output of the forests.
So with this in mind, many people are now considering how to increase the production of the forests that are already available. A part of production increases is to manage the existing forests, and not to allow this area to go to cultivation or become marshland.
We manage our forests in a way that benefits the environment, and we consider that our working practice over the years has shown us to be correct and well functioning.
A part of our way of producing forests is to ensure that we have functioning drainage systems in the forest holdings which we administer. The responsible at Holmen Skog requested a good method to make inventories of the drainage systems of Holmen forests.
This Degree Project is about ways to identify and implement drainage systems with modern methods. It deals with authorities regulations, and how they operate in different counties. A method of application and considerations for carrying out the inventory and working operations on the drainage system based upon work experience.
This report describes how to proceed for increased production of forests in low lying terrain and other parts where it has become water logged for one reason or another.
