Young stand management is a profitable investment in sustainable forest management

Young stand management creates growth space for trees. Early cleaning is usually carried out 4–8 years after planting, and pre-commercial thinning when the stand is 10–15 years old. Young forest management should be performed if young stand management has not been carried out in time. Your personal forest specialist will tell you when young stand management should be carried out in your forest.
