The total area of the protective forest zone in the north is about 3.3 million hectares, of which State forests administered by Metsähallitus account for 2.8 million hectares. 380,000 hectares of State forests are under commercial management without any felling restrictions.

According to the latest report by the Finnish Forest Research Institute, published in 2003, the regeneration of forests in the protective zone has been fairly successful. Unless the climate changes suddenly, no changes are expected in forest regeneration.
