The results published in 2023 include revisions of previously published estimates for voluntare set-asides for 2020 to 2022. The revisions are caused by a previous overestimation of the area of voluntary set-asides by 12,000 ha. Changes between single years for regions and ownership categories should be analysed with caution since reviosions are common for these statistics and often caused by improvements in certificate holders registries. The decrease in area of Sveaskogs voluntary set-asides between 2022 and 2023 was caused by an agreement between Sveaskog and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency of forming new protected areas. Formally protected areas can not be counted as voluntary set-asides so that area is the decrease between the two years.
