Study uncovers widespread and ongoing clearcutting of Swedish old forests

Almost one fourth of Sweden’s last unprotected old-growth forest was logged between 2003 and 2019. At this rate, all of these ecologically unique and valuable forests will be lost in about 50 years. These findings add to the growing body of evidence for widespread cryptic forest degradation across the global north.Almost one fourth of Sweden’s last unprotected old-growth forest was logged between 2003 and 2019.
