Forests and wood as raw material
Forests are Finland's most important
natural resource

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.

Facts about Finnish forests

More than 75% of Finland's land area is covered by forest. Forest growth has exceeded the annual fellings by 30% in recent years.

Commercial forest is a multiple-use forest

The availability of wood raw material is the basic prerequisite for the forest industry’s existence. Successful forest industry produces tax and export revenues for Finland and facilitates new environmentally friendly investments. Together, active forest management and wood-based products strengthen Finland's economy in a sustainable way and provide employment throughout Finland.

Finnish commercial forests not only produce wood but offer numerous other benefits and commodities as well. Wood production, the development of carbon storage, the promotion of biodiversity and recreational values are all an integral part of sustainable forestry.

In Finland, forests are used sustainably and responsibly. Forests are managed to keep them viable and growing well. Active and timely forest management secures the availability of domestic wood raw material, prevents forest damage and, at the same time, promotes the accumulation of our forest resources and maintains the carbon storage of forests. Nature management in commercial forests is part of everyday forestry. It helps promote the biodiversity of forests.
