The nature



Granna forest group are aiming at preserving the existing small unspoiled habitats alternatively maintaining them by employing environmentally caring methods. It is typically about creek ravines, precipices, alder marshes or areas withheld by heavy management such as pollard pastures or pastures situated in the forest. Associated to and in between these spots of exceptional values special care is taken. A spider web of biological infrastructure may appear when spoiled habitats are restored and more natural elements are allowed in the culturally influenced forest. 

We are striving for the accomplishment of a sustainable and long-term management of the forest considering the habitats of vulnerable animals and plants. Balancing conservation and productivity interests presupposes reasoning on landscape level on behalf of the different species. We are aiming at the formal protection of large areas with high natural values as well as a durable management of the approximately 90 percent of the forest situated outside of the nature reserves. Monocultural forest management based on large-scale clearings ”sprucefields” has caused a lack of old trees, dead wood and deciduous trees.

The forest group therefore tries to establish an active dialogue with property owners and authorities to communicate the existing values and contributing knowledge on a sustainable forest management encompassing nature values.

We also endeavour to achieve a carefully cultivated landscape, caring for the biological values. Habitats of many threatened and rare species are dependent on cultivation by humans and animals. The species and the habitats also make monuments of the cultivation of earlier generations and hence contribute to our cultural heritage. Pollard trees, meadows and extensively cultivated pastures are some examples of biologically valuable habitats created by human cultivation
