Forest compartment (kuvio, metsikkökuvio)

Forest compartment is a section of forest with homogeneous growth conditions and tree species. It may also be called stand compartment or stand. The size of compartments varies; in Southern Finland the average size is 2 to 3 hectares. Compartments are marked in forestry maps, and forest management plans are made according to their growing conditions.
