Holmen Selects Trimble’s Connected Forest Management System

Trimble announced that Holmen, a leading Swedish forestry company, has selected Trimble CONNECTED FOREST as its new, comprehensive forest management system for Holmen Skog. ForestX, Trimble’s service partner in Sweden, will implement the digital transformation project.

Holmen Skog, responsible for managing and developing Holmen’s extensive land holdings totaling approximately 1.3 million hectares, is set to become the first in Sweden and Scandinavia to fully adopt the Trimble CONNECTED FOREST suite. Selecting the CONNECTED FOREST suite aligns with Holmen’s strategic commitment to become more data-driven in its forestry operations.

Clas Engström, head of development at Holmen Skog, commented on the strategic move: “CONNECTED FOREST gives us a platform where we can add more solutions and systems in the future. We have a lot of data. Now we have a platform that makes it possible for our company to take a data-driven approach in our work for the long term. In Trimble, we have an active counterpart who continues to develop their software. We get inspiration from Trimble for our own development.”

The adoption of the CONNECTED FOREST suite represents not only an IT project, but a significant shift in Holmen Skog’s approach to work. Engström said, “We are also looking at changing our own working methods. We have involved large parts of the business to find some new approaches and to work in new ways.”

“Holmen Skog’s strategic adoption of Trimble’s CONNECTED FOREST suite represents a pivotal moment in advancing data-driven forestry operations in Sweden,” said Kevin Toohill, general manager of Trimble Forestry. “In collaboration with ForestX, this initiative is pivotal to transforming sustainable forest management.”

ForestX plays a crucial role in implementing the project. Engström emphasized the value of ForestX’s involvement: “ForestX is close to us and knows forestry in Sweden and Scandinavia. It will be a great advantage to collaborate in Swedish during these major development steps.”
