Metsään.fi is a Finnish online portal which offers latest information to forest owners on their properties. The easy to access portal offers registered users an overview of what should be done in their forests right now. Information is displayed for each forest stand compartment, broken down by soil type, tree type and natural occurrence, and possible logging or forestry actions are suggested, including income and cost estimates. Furthermore, the portal connects owners with providers of forestry services. This makes commissioning management work and staying in touch with forestry professionals much easier.
Metsään.fi is provided by the Finnish Forest Centre, which is a state-funded organisation for promoting sustainable forestry and forest-based livelihoods. The portal is free of charge.

How does this Best Practice contribute to sustainable wood mobilisation?
Metsään.fi enhances sustainable wood mobilization in many ways. The eService encourages forest owners to carry out silvicultural works. By showing cutting possibilities for each forest estate, taking into account the balance of increment and loss, owners are encouraged to conduct harvesting measures. These components are an important step towards sustainable wood mobilisation.
