Dahlen, Arvid, 2014. Tallens fortsatta tillväxt i älgbetade bestånd. First cycle, G1E. Skinnskatteberg: SLU, School for Forest Management



The Swedish Forestry Research Institute implemented an experiment which began in the year 1979 in a by moose browse damaged area in Sweden.
An audit in 2014 of the moose browsing study called “Furudalsförsöket” is the underlay to the study's results. By comparing Scots pine stands development in relation to known damage obtained thereby gives the understanding of how browsing affects the short and long terms impacts of Scots pines quality and volume production.
The results of this year's audit reveal that the standing volumes in the undamaged and damaged areas represent a significant difference. The number and volume of the ingrown trees constitute a larger proportion of the areas that have been heavily browsed. It also proves once again that that all damage classes had a downward trend, which means that the damage is concealed with time. The damaged pines do not show any clear trends to recover in terms of growth.
