The green gold of Finland is a book about Finnish forests and their sustainable use. The vitality of Finnish forests and our land’s constantly increasing forest reserves are mainly due to the multidisciplinary expertise and responsibility of the Finnish forest industry and our cutting-edge forest innovations. The industry uses wood in a diverse way and takes good care of the forests. Finns have a unique relationship with the forest. Finland is one of the world’s most forest-rich countries: over 80% of our land area is covered by a green sea of treetops. Everyman’s rights guarantee that everyone is free to roam in our forests, which truly are an inexhaustible source of well-being and prosperity.
