Other Site Characteristics

This site is characterized of a very flat land with large areas of wetlands and bog woodland. Some bouldery moraine hills are covered with old growth of virgin forest. The forest is a coniferous forest with dense spruce dominated parts varying with drier parts dominated by pine. A few small dystrophic lakes completes the picture of this northerly landscape where Hamra national park and the small lake Svansjön is the natural center.

4.2 Quality and importance

Hamra nationalpark, founded 1909, is one of the first national parks in Sweden and one of the smallest. When the park was protected it was said that it had "never been tuched by man and so situated that the economic sacrifice on the state was the least possible".The forest is made up of spruce-dominated parts varying with drier pineforests. The trees can be found in all ages. Pines occur up to 60 - 70 cm diameter of breast hight but are usually weaker. The forest is rich of valuable structure connected to a natural forest as large pine standard often with traces of former forest fires, old windthrows, dead trees and high stumps. A high number of threatened species of national interest is found in the area. The area has a very rich fauna of insects, which is very well documented. As many as 240 species of beetles has been found in the national park. The area is also an important site for birds that is dependent of this mixture of virgin forest and wetlands. The national park includes a small lake and it borders on lake Svansjön, the largest lake in the site.Hamra national park is very popular for outings and one of the most visited sites for nature conservancy in the county.Hamra national park is surrounded by valuable mires, wetlands, brooks and forests and it is therefore the natural centre of a much larger area which is planned to be protected.Hamra national park is a most valuable site for nature conservancy. It is furthermore of a great historical value for the nature conservancy in Sweden and also on the history of ideas.
