The new Finnish PEFC forestry standard is significant in many ways. PEFC clarifies the guidelines for modern forest management and efficient timber production. Simultaneously, it is Finland's largest environmental movement; hundreds of thousands of forest owners are committed to protecting the environment above and beyond the requirements of the law.
The forestry standards are periodically updated to respond to the changing requirements of the operating environment. We want to incorporate the experience gained in this area and the latest research information into forestry practices for the benefit of forest owners, forests, the environment and the economy.
