In the March edition of FOREXT Friday, we heard from two experts at the Finnish Forest Centre.
The forests in Finland are not only economically important but also their recreational use is exceptionally wide. During the corona crisis, the Finns have deepened their relationship with nature and forests in particular.
As more than 600,000 Finns are forest owners, that is one out of ten Finns, the role of the Finnish Forest Centre in supporting them and other actors in the field means they need to develop their services all the time. In the webinar, Anna Rakemaa introduced the work FFC is doing in digital monitoring of forest use and Jyrki Haataja talked about Finland’s forest strategies, both national and regional. The webinar was facilited by Anssi Niskanen.
