The new website www.skogsmissbruket.org/english (in English: forestry misuse) encourages people to take action and svamp the internet with images and videos to show how terribly bad the forest situation is in Sweden. On the website, a number of images can be downloaded for free and shared on social media by anyone, as long as the name of the photographer is mentioned under every picture.
The website states:
“For generations, we have been told that Swedish environmental practices – including its forestry management – are among the best in the world.
And yet, for over half a century, this is what has been happening to our old growth forests.
Every year, more forests are razed to the ground, which is then ploughed like an agricultural field to make way for monoculture plantations, neat rows of pine or spruce. Not for the sake of biodiversity, but to be harvested once again in 60 to 80 years.
Those are not real forests. Complex ecosystems, once they have been destroyed, cannot be artificially recreated.”
