Sammanfattning

Itisknownthatforestshaveapositiveimpactonhumanhealthandwell‐being.The aim of this study was to examine human relationships with forest environ‐ments on a different level. Specifically, how people in western Sweden relate to a particular place in a forest.• Data were collected using a questionnaire placed on a tree located in a spe‐cific forest setting over the course of a year. The results were examined from a phenomenological (the philosophical study of the structures of experience and consciousness)life‐worldperspectivethathighlightstheintersubjectivityandhis‐toricity of people's connections to a forest environment.• Theresultsrevealthattheexperienceof‘being’or‘doing’inaforestproducesalarger, more nuanced, response than the simple experience itself. This complex response includes an individual's previous experiences, childhood memories, his‐tory and connections to cultural representations.• Examining and understanding more deeply the relationships that humans have with forests is important for those that aim to engage people with forests and the botanical world.
