Science also have to be beautiful. Or simply just IS. We believe the driving force for deeper knowledge into our nature is that senses are looking for harmonies. And when found, something genuinely good happens. It can exist in music, visual image aesthetics, mathematics, solutions graphs or figures, or just great memories in our minds. The positive observation, experiance, upon nature is this firms fundamental driving force. Here some loose samples from an earthy forest calibration truly without high heels in, after all, a great summer, year 2020.
Sun sets over forest county Värmland. As some say with funny stone face; ”over the Taigan hell”, (”barrskogshelvetet”, a word, or expression, that scores big time if pronounciated in dialect, norrbottniska or värmländska. Crazy swede…).
A small scale farm. Nowadays an old good neighbour who went to the forest with his father for honest work as a young teenager. Still living in his birthplace and ancestors plot. Still farming and growing a little ”broke back good stuff” from mineral rich but nitrogene poor soil.
At the top of Starkberget (really NOT a mountain peak, but anyway… if someone hesitated for a sec…) a woodland key habitat (Nyckelbiotop) a couple grey furish forest rangers may thrive very well. But getting there is a lump walk in bloody sucks…(hidden in the clear cuts Wavy hair grass!). So the wild great Old rangers may rest in peace up there, yawning, before the night hunt and howl his, or her, wild harmony.
Now. Regarding ”calibration”; here is a sample (sorry Swe only) from one of our lumber partners’ late undertakings regarding helping the red listed and endangered White backed wood pecker (Dendrocopos leucotos); 10 000 new acrs will be created with a dominantly deciduous corridor stretching west to east of Sweden. Not bad. Not bad at all. The ”green needle forestry culture, plantations” are altered in that cirridor for a little while (50 years according to the agreement). The forest agency, Swedish nature conservation, and the land owners meet for ”calibration” and settlement. When those big lumber companies eventually decides upon their land – the ”small stuff and thinking” aint around… We say, ”they paint with the broad pencil”… in Good or Bad.
