Research and teaching in forest sciences

The Hyytiälä Forestry Field Station and the surrounding state-owned land provide opportunities for research and teaching pertaining to the boreal forest zone.

There are almost 40 square kilometres of state-owned land (peatlands, forests and small lakes) close to Hyytiälä, which the station utilises for research purposes under a collaboration agreement concluded with Metsähallitus, the state-owned environmental service provider. Significant nature reserves are also located nearby.

The long-term network of test plots for teaching and research and other resources provide background information, among other things, on tree growth, management measures, forest types, tree species and experimental measures.
