Regenerative forestry improves the state of forest nature

Metsä Group is committed to the principles of regenerative forestry. In regenerative forestry, the state of forest nature does not deteriorate but rather grows stronger. Our goal is to ensure that Finnish forest assets are transferred in a more vibrant, diverse and climate resilient condition from one generation and owner to the next.

We implement regenerative forestry principles through various measures as part of our daily work in Finnish forests. In addition to improving the biodiversity of forest nature, the measures make economic sense to forest owners.

A diverse forest is more vibrant, and most measures increasing the biodiversity of forest nature also promote forest health and make forests more climate resilient, as a diverse forest resists damage better. The implementation of regenerative forestry principles also helps forests remain carbon sinks.
