Swedish Forest Agency: Several statistical data sources support that harvesting has not increased
In an article in the journal Nature, a research team claims that harvesting in the EU has increased dramatically in recent years. The Swedish Forest Agency has now compiled several different independent statistical data sources to clarify that this conclusion is incorrect.
The article in Nature was published on July 1 and quickly gained a lot of attention. The research team that wrote the article claims that harvesting within the EU has increased by 49 percent in recent years, and that Sweden and Finland contributed to most of this increase.
