METSO Habitats

The METSO Programme is aimed at helping forest owners conserve the forests that constitute valuable habitats for different species. In Finland, there are ten forested habitats of particular biodiversity value

  • Herb-rich forests
  • Heathland forests with plenty of decaying wood
  • Forests adjacent to springs and pools
  • Wooded mires and the wooded margins of open mires
  • Swampy woodlands and wooded flood meadows
  • Sunlit slopes on sandy esker ridges
  • Biodiversity sites along emergent coastlines
  • Wooded heritage biotopes
  • Wooded habitats on calcium-rich bedrock and ultra-alkaline soil
  • Wooded cliffs, bluffs and boulder fields important for biodiversity
