In total 4.2 million ha of Finland’s area is other than forest land (agricultural land, cities, roads etc.)
The Finnish classification of forestry land is based on the annual forest increment. On productive forest land the annual increment per hectare is over one cubic metre. On poorly productive forest land the increment is 0.1–1 cubic metre, and on unproductive forest land less than 0.1 cubic metre per hectare per year. In addition to this, forestry land is taken to include protected forests.

Roope Tonteri, snowboarding world champion in slopestyle and big air, says he aspires to be a forestry worker. Looking after forests is a badge of honour for him. It also strengthens his bond with nature. #forest #Finland #education #silviculture https://t.co/SoGREhZG9d
