Most people are aware that the Amazon rainforests are being devastated, but few know that almost all of Sweden’s natural forests have disappeared. About the forest is a post in the debate on Swedish forestry and highlights the difficulties and consequences of a hard deforestation with fast-growing forest plantations and a devastating short-sightedness. About the forest shows the vulnerability in the transition to a fossil-free society where we become increasingly dependent on the forest as a natural resource. At the same time, the film highlights the individual’s commitment and struggle for our last natural forests with its biological diversity and also tries to offer a gaze ahead on the way to a more sustainable forestry.
