Ljunggren Skogfors, Gustav, 2016. En dokumentation av AB Karl Hedins föryngringar efter skogsbranden 2014. First cycle, G2E. Skinnskatteberg: SLU, School for Forest Management



During the summer of 2014 there was a major forest fire in Västmanland. In the area affected by the fire the highest priority was to save the remaining timber and simultaneously start planning for the future regeneration.

This documentation has been carried out in cooperation with AB Karl Hedin. The purpose of this project was to document the regeneration that has been performed during the summer of 2015 at AB Karl Hedin’s section of the burned- over area.

Approximately 500 hectares were regenerated during the 2015 season and the regeneration methods used were manual and mechanized sowing, planting and scarification under seed trees. Scarification with a front mounted beam on a forwarder was used in cases with large amounts of remaining residues. The major threats to the regeneration is the pine weevil and pine fire fungus. The regeneration of the fire area will be carried out over three years.
