Läänemaa Metsaühistu was founded in 2010 by a dozen forest owners in Lääne County. What distinguishes the Läänemaa Metsaühistu from other forest owners’ associations is the large number of Swedish forest owners and the fact that Swedish is one of the working languages. As there are many descendants of former coastal Swedes in Lääne County, the newly formed association was introduced to Swedish forest owners in Stockholm, who embraced the idea and joined over the span of a couple of years.
Under the leadership of then CEO Mikk Link, they began assisting with forest subsidy applications and organising harvesting operations. Today, more than 600 forest owners are offered a full range of services based on the life cycle of the forest.
