Protect the Forest is a Swedish non-profit nature conservation organization focusing on forests.
The organization Protect the Forest was established in January 2009 by people engaged in forest issues from the whole country, because of the critical situation of the forest and the threats against the biological diversity.
We work to protect Sweden’s old-growth forests and other forests with high conservation values.
We also work for a reformation of the forestry into a nature-oriented multi-usage, leaving a lot of room for local livelihoods and sustainable usages of natural resources, recreation and ecotourism.
We oppose the forest management methods of today, which do not live up to the portal paragraph of the Swedish Forestry Act that states that the environmental objective and the production objective should be of equal importance.
We safeguard the Swedish Right of Public Access. (A unique right to roam freely in nature as long as we show consideration.)
