Abstract

This report covers elaboration and demonstration of a method to quantify
and evaluate the many uses of the forest for people living in a sparsely
populated area in the north of Sweden. The uses are grouped into the forest
or forestry as a source of income, value as environment for leisure time,
value as residential environment, and finally other values. Ten households in
Skroven and Hakkas in Norrbotten are interviewed. The interviewees
describe their use and the amounts and frequencies, rank the four uses, and
put a relative value in per cent on each use. The annual mean total value is
121 000 SEK. The various mean incomes are less then half (45%) of the
value derived from all uses of the forest. Comparing the three uses that
constitute the other half, all are of approximately equal value. The incomes
concerned are from employment in forestry, from reindeer herding, from
the sale of timber from a forest holding or from the increase in value of the
holding, or from firewood.
Key words: forest use, value, interview, income, residential environment, leisure time

Denna rapport redovisar utformning och demonstration av en intervju­
baserad metod for kvantifiering och vardering av anvandningen av skog i
vid mening i glesbygd i Norrbotten. Brukandet av skogen delas in i fyra
grupper: skogen som inkomstkalla, som miljo for fritidsaktiviteter, som
boendemiljo samt ovriga varden. Tio hushall i Skroven och Hakkas ingar i
studien. De intervjuade beskriver for sina respektive hushall anvandningen i
mangd och frekvens, rangordnar de fyra grupperna och bedomer det relativa
vardet i% for respektive grupp. Den arliga totala vardet efter skatt ar i
genomsnitt 121 000 SEK. Skogen som inkomstkalla star for 45% av det
totala vardet, medan ovriga brukningsformer varderas till ungefar lika
varden vardera. Inkomsten fran skog och skogs bruk kommer fran
anstallning inom virkesproducerande foretag, renskotsel, virkesforsaljning,
vardeokning pa skogsfastighet, resp fran ved for uppvarmning.
