As the Swedish governments long term goals include a reduction of fossil fuel dependency, increasing pressure is placed upon energy companies to create and develop new solutions for renewable energy. The following case study was done in collaboration with the company Sydved Energileveranser AB and one of their contractors, Enarssons Skogsentreprenad AB. The objective of the study is to examine the bioenergy situation in region of Skåne and evaluate the potential solutions in the region for a forest-fuel assortment, based on a bioenergy-cutting-system. As a part of this study I have compared ordinary manual cuttings done with a chain saw and cuttings made using the new "bio- energy cutting system". The cuttings made under both systems were tested in areas near agricultural fields or pasture land in order to maintain an open landscape. Local landowners and managers of agricultural land were surveyed to gain insight into the previous management methods used in such areas to keep the landscape open from growing trees and undergrowth. The survey also aimed at determine the willingness of the landowners to employ the new "bio- energy cutting system" for these types of cuttings in the future.
