Swedish central & local governments
If charity begins at home, so does conservation. Sweden stands for sustainability, but in Bergslagen the state forestry company Sveaskog is devastating the environment faster than it can recuperate. They have totally razed a city size area near Ramshyttan village - entirely destroying the undergrowth of berries, mushrooms and more. It looks like a war zone and it will take centuries for the chantarelle etc to return. They continue to target forests along waterways - including one opposite my house - start cutting soon. This is quite legal - which is where the government comes in. Make stricter forestry rules...think of the income from eco tourism which they are destroying as they destroy our heritage.
