Sustainable forest management means the managed utilization of forests in ecologically, socially, economically and culturally sustainable way. In Finland the forest is growing almost 110 Mio cubic meter of wood per annum and the total harvesting is only about 70 Mio cubic meter. Finland has been practicing sustainable forest management for a long time. Destruction of forests was prohibited by the very first Forest Act in 1886. Forest owner must ensure that a new forest is established to replace the one felled.
