Data collection and analysis were done simultaneously according to grounded theory methodology. The result consists of a thematic analysis of the contents of the interviews. "The loss of the forest" was identified as the core theme and was related to four underlying themes,labelled "The relation to the forest", "The relation to others", "Time goes by" and "Self-care".
