Parkano Unit

Sitemap | Search

The Parkano Unit is promoting sustainable forestry by producing information on forest condition and on forestry especially about peatlands.

Metla's first regional research station was established in Parkano in 1961. The research unit has been situated at its current location on the beautiful Kaironiemi-peninsula, close to the centre of Parkano, since 1975. The research unit initially concentrated on research on into peatlands and peatland forestry, but over the decades the research activities have increased considerably and now include topics related e.g. to silviculture and forest condition and health.

The number of staff at the research is 36, 12 of them researchers. The employment of temporary staff increases the total number of person-years at the station to nearly 60.
