Jan 2020 Happy new year

Sep 2019 Maintaining deeper forest skills

It is nice to see that biodiversity comes well with old growth forests. And in such a forest so much is going on, the ecology is working on a continuous basis.

Aug 2019 Microplastics transboundary

On our move this firm takes responsibility. The littering of sea and shore got to END! An opportunity to collect and clean a tiny bit Coast. Perfect basket right there.

May 2019 ”30-30-30”

Our methodology of ”30-30-30” does it make sense? Some claim that nature on earth should be 30 percent protected by year 2030 in order to maintain fundamental processes upon which life depends. One way to proceed with forests is thus to use… 30 percent of the land for conventional and commercial ”industrial” landuse (given fulfilling [Läs mer…]
