In Finland, the annual growth of forests exceeds the harvested volumes. This means that our forest resources are accumulating on a continuous basis. Active and timely forest management keeps the forests viable and in good growth. When forests are managed well, the use of forests can be increased while strengthening their carbon storage and the biodiversity of forest nature.
More than 75% of Finland's land area is covered by forest. Forest growth has exceeded the annual fellings by 30% in recent years.
The growth and evolution of forests in Finland is mainly the result of good forest management.
