Introduction
I'm employed as a doctoral student at the department of forest resource management in Umeå since 2nd September, 2019. The aims with my research is to describe and analyse uncertainties in forest information/data used in forest planning. The goal is also to develop new planning methods that takes these uncertainties into account. I am also a “industrial doctoral student” at Holmen Skog AB (a Swedish forest company) in Örnsköldsvik. My work there focus on long time planning of their forest management. My supervisors: Tomas Lämås, associate professor (main supervisor); Karin Öhman, professor; Ljusk Ola Eriksson, senior adviser/prev professor; Sofia Sjödin, head of the forest planning section at Holmen Skog AB

Description
  • Apart from being a doctoral student at the university, I am also an “industrial doctoral student” at Holmen Skog AB (a Swedish forest company) in Örnsköldsvik. My work there focus on long time planning of their forest management and different analyses of their forest holdings (approx. 1 Mha).

This qualitative study aimed to map what information is used in the forest planning process at large forest-owning companies, how it is used, its level of uncertainty and currently employed strategies to handle forest information uncertainty. An additional aim was to assess the status of the paradigm of the forest planning hierarchy in forestry. We...
Technical Report
Full-text available
I den strategiska skogliga planeringen utarbetas långsiktiga strategier för nyttjandet av skogsresursen, vilket kan inkludera hur avverkningspotentialen ska nyttjas över tid, val av föryngringsträdslag, samt inriktningen för miljö- och naturvård. Med andra ord så lägger strategisk planering grunden till ett hållbart brukande av skogen. Vid många av...
Thesis
Full-text available
There is a lack of knowledge about the stand dynamics and carbon storage in forests dominated by Shorea robusta C.F. Gaertn (fam. Dipterocarpaceae) in southern Nepal, especially in forests managed by local communities. Since S. robusta is a major tree species and REDD+ is of growing importance in Nepal, it is necessary to know about these character...

A report that presents benefits and drawbacks with area-based and strata-based strategic forest planning. The project is part of the Mistra Digital Forest Task 1.4. The report will be in Swedish.
Project
The goal of this doctoral studies project is to improve decision making in forest management planning by taking uncertainties in the forest information into account in the planning process. The guiding hypotheses are: - Knowledge about size (and other aspects) of uncertainties in the forest information/data should lead to better decisions about future forest management. - Forest management planning methods that incorporate knowledge about uncertainties in the decision making process should lead to better decisions.
