Suojametsäkysymyksestä II. Suojametsäjärjestelmän tarkoitusperät ja edellytyksetProtection forests II.
The second part of the six-article series about protection forest in Northern Finland outlines the principles of protecting Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) timber line. The protected areas should include at least all of the viable pine stands and those birch (Betula sp.) lands that are necessary to safeguard fuel wood supply in the pine forest zone. Outside the actual pine forest zone also those birch stands that are near populated regions should be protected to secure sustainable fuel wood supply. Third, south and down of the pine forest zone should be protected pine forest stands and adjacent open fell areas where forests are especially vulnerable. A new protection forest commission should be established to execute the protection forest legislation.
The article is divided in six parts. The parts II and III of the article series are included in the same PDF. A German summary is in a separate PDF.
