In addition to the viewable voluntary set-aside forest on the map, there are also voluntary set-aside forest by private forest owner.  In total about 1,35 miljon hectar forest is voluntary set-aside in Sweden.

In national parks and nature reserves it is, due to inadequate available map data, not possible to distinguish forests from non-forests in  (e.g. part of the mountain areas highlighted in red are not forests).
