What is the given English translation for this scheme?

Skogsavdrag är ett system kan utnyttjas vid köp av skogsfastigheter i Sverige, även av aktiebolag.
Avdragsutrymmet är för aktiebolag 25 procent av köpeskillingen som belöper på skogsvärdet. Upp till den summan kan aktiebolaget sedan göra direktavdrag vid avverkningar, dock med högst 50 procent av likviden för det sålda verket per år. Systemet gör att skatten på intäkterna skjuts upp men de ska också återläggas vid en försäljning av fastigheten.

Forest depletion allowance

This reminds me of the US oil depletion allowance from the Internal Revenue Code, which worked in much the same way.
