This Master thesis is performed at the request of the forest company Mellanskog and the local municipality of Borlänge in Sweden and aims to establish recreational adjusted forest management plan for the areas of Mellsta and Skräddarbacken in Borlänge. In all types of urban forestry it is very important that the management plan are accepted by the general public. To make sure that also these plans of future measures, pass in the public, interview studies have been performed in which the public wishes and interests have been examined and applied in the management plan. To make sure that future measures in the forest may be accepted by the public when the forest harvester enters the woods, it is very important that a well functional work of information has been made. The people living close by the forest shall have been informed a couple of weeks before the time of measures and it must also be good information available that explains what is to be done and why. The forest in Mellsta is very popular among the citizens of Borlänge and many tenth of kilometres of paths and jogging tracks crowd in the area that reach an amount of total 37.5 hectare. Mellsta is visited by people from all parts of Borlänge and they come in most cases to exercise. The forest contains exclusively of trees older than 65 years old and mostly of pine. To make sure that the good qualities, concerning recreation, is secured for all future the management plan aim to, over many years, create a more divers mixture of age among the stands without destroying the forests important qualities from a enjoyment pint of view. In the plan two rejuvenationcuttings and a number of thinning measures has been proposed during the upcoming 10 years. The forest in Skräddarbacken is a less used urban forest. The area is about 30 hectares big and is mostly used by the citizens of Skräddarbacken and Stora Tuna spots association. The forest varies much concerning both age and treespices but the characteristic of the is much based on the rather large areas of old spruce which during the following years ought to be regenerated. During the following 10 years a number of management measures have been suggested in the area that will change the character of the present forest. But hopefully the measures wont change the recreational qualities in large extent.
