Metsäkeskus publishes monitoring information on felling intentions in accordance with the forest use declaration.

The forest owner is obliged to make a forest use notification to Metsäkeskus in advance. The obligation under the Forest Act applies to all commercial logging with the minor exceptions mentioned in the Act. The forest use notification contains, among other things, information on the location, area and felling method of the planned felling.

The weekly monitoring compiles an estimate of the amount of harvest accumulation (m³ / ha) and the accumulation of carrier money (€) from the beginning of the year. The map service displays incoming forest use notifications as location information. Statistics on logging methods are also produced annually.
