In this master thesis we suggest a recreational directed forest management plan for the Skedalaskogen. The forest is situated 10 kilometres east of the city of Halmstad and is owned by the municipality. We have in literature and in research investigated what people like and want in the forest, how to manage the forest for recreation according to for example tree species, mixtures and density. We tried to adapt the forestry methods more to recreational thinking. We have also looked at issues like what is rare and not rare in this part of the country according to nature and forest, where people live and which connection they have to the Skedalaskogen. The Skedalaskogen is a quite big area, totally 830 hectares. The area have about 100 000 visitors a year. Many different organisations use the forest. In the southern part of the area there are some lakes of large importance for recreation. The area has some locations from which there are nice views on the area. The dominating forest type is spruce. There are also smaller areas with young broadleaved forest, noble broadleaved forest and wetlands. We describe the Skedalaskogen both according to forest and landscape conditions and according to factors like history, paths, roads and topography. This has been done because we want the readers to get a clear picture of the area so it can be adapted to other areas. We have worked with three different levels in the thesis. The first level includes suggestions for how to roughly divide the area for different interests, where to put emphasis on recreation and where to put emphasis on production. The second level consists of the western part of the forest area. Here we put more effort in how to change tree species from spruce to broadleaves. The third level consists of five smaller detail areas. Here we give suggestions on how to design these areas according to, for example, tree species and paths. The main purpose with these different areas is to create a better variation in the area to get a forest more adapted for recreation.
