finland 0During the period January to May 2018, the proportion of picking and hatching increased to 3.7 percent of all planned fires, reports the Finnish Forest Center. 

One reason why the traditional crops still dominate in Finland and elsewhere is that the forests have been managed through thinning and finishing mills for decades and that they have therefore developed into the right-bodied stocks.

Forestry of tree populations of different ages is becoming more common in the privately owned forests, the Helsinki newspaper Hufvudstadsbladet, HBL writes.

The harvesting methods in so-called unusual forests are picking and hatching. By picking up, you remove the largest trees, so that you get light and space for a natural plant lookup. When shedding, small glands are made, where there are natural plants, explains HBL.
