Forestry

The Swedish forestry sector is as important to us at Foyen as it is for the whole of Sweden. We have extensive experience of the area, and have built a wide variety of skill sets in our dedicated team for this sector, to cover all aspects that our experience tells us can emerge, from planting to cultivation. Today, we handle everything from sustainability issues and transport to emissions and decontamination.

So, how can we help? Do you have licencing issues, are you preparing to acquire an old facility, do you need to make process changes, or do you perhaps have questions related to different EU directives? Whatever the problem, you can be sure that we have the experience, the insight and the legal expertise needed to provide a clear and business-astute recommendation. Our first recommendation is always that you contact us.
