Areas and maps
One third of Finland
Metsähallitus administers more than 12 million hectares of state-owned land and water areas. This is almost one third of Finland. Our areas consist of a rich variety of forests, mires, shores and waters. The majority of state lands are located in Eastern and Northern Finland.
