The clearcut is 115 hectares in size. The forest that grew here before the felling was about 120 – 140 years old and Scots pine-dominated. There were plenty of traces of older forest fires, which long ago ravaged the area. Old stumps with coal and scorched parts from the fire were everywhere and occasional really old pines with fire scars from the heat of the fire stood here. On the rocky ground there was sometimes plenty of dead wood, which is important for many forest species. In the forest that is now gone, there were also several red-listed species. But despite all the finds of unusual species and the fierce protests from nature conservation, the old pine forest was clearcut by the state-owned and FSC-certified forest company Sveaskog.
As you can see in the 3D-models, a clear-cut forest land might consist of several areas next to each other where the trees have ben felled at different times but, still, within a short period of time. Humans and the species who live there experience the clear-cut forest land as one area.
