Ostrobothnian natural resource planning area

One third the land and water areas of Northern and Central Ostrobothnia is under the administration of Metsähallitus. The planning area comprises these state-owned land and water areas, with the exception of the municipality of Vaala*.

The role of Metsähallitus in the planning area varies. The largest contiguous state-owned land areas are located in the Kuusamo region, where Metsähallitus plays an important role. In the western and southern parts of the region, the state-owned areas are smaller and more scattered, while the water areas are of substantial size. In these areas, too, there are municipalities, where Metsähallitus plays an important role.

(*The municipality of Vaala used to be part of the Kainuu region and is included in the natural resource plan for Kainuu prepared in 2014-2015).
