This paper introduces a short pilot study on the concept FOREST COMMUNICATION in an Arctic or Boreal context. The study presents the preliminaries for more extensive comparative studies between Russia and Sweden. Basic data about different interpretations of the central concepts ARCTIC, FOREST, BOREAL and COMMUNICATION are presented and introduced as the base for the study and continuations in the future. The work is based upon qualitative methodology and foremost phenomenology. The main idea is to present the essence of the concepts used. The authors make a statement that the original concept ARCTIC has extended its connotation and that presently the idea of the forest as a major part of the Arctic has to be investigated. The importance of considering special forms of communication in the extended context is discussed and will be the start of future more specialized studies.
