For some time, I have felt that our Swedish group of amateur dendrochronologists is a bit closed. Only communicating by email - as we have exclusively done until now - does not invite contacts with others. With a forum it would be easier for an outsider to join, as old postings are available for reading.
The main language for writings in this forum will be English!
Some questions and problems which are related mainly to Sweden will probably anyhow be discussed in Swedish..
Being too rigid with a requirement that everything should be in English would probably only result in communicating the old way - by email.
And then - afterwards - that emailed Swedish discussion is in any case not available to Swedish newcomers.
Though with some non-Swedish speaking forum members which write a bit, the Swedes will certainly write in English!
So, please welcome to this forum!
