around the Area of the ojnare forest is classified as a EUROPEAN nature reserve, a so-called Natura 2000 area. In the decision of the Land and environment court, which was announced in september 2018, the court held that quarrying in the area would lead to the priority habitats present in the area mined out.
the Conflict over quarrying in the ojnare forest is lengthy. In Nordkalks cases has the court case been going on for 13 years, and whether the decision of the Supreme court means that the last word is said, remains to be seen. After the announcement in the Land and environment court in september said Nordkalk that the judgment could be appealed to the EUROPEAN court of justice.
