Similar to many other countries, particularly in Europe, Sweden has revised much of its legislation relating to forestry and environment since 1990. Of immediate relevance to the forest sector are the 1993 Forestry Act and consequent ordnances and regulations, and to forest property acquisition, forest income taxation, and the function of the Swedish Forest Agency. New environmental legislation has consequences for forest policy making, and voluntary certification was introduced The effects of these changes have been examined and analysed, the latest in a Government forest policy proposition to the Parliament in 2008. The present paper reviews the revised legislation and its consequences.
