A change of the forestry management approach where semi-natural forests are re-created after logging instead of tree plantations will contribute to a sustainable forestry. Such a change will increase resilience to damages on trees, thus contributing to a more reliable supply of wood, improve reindeer husbandry, and reduce climate-driving gases. Furthermore, re-creation of semi-natural forests will better secure biodiversity. Since adequate protection of many threatened forest species, however, is not compatible with even moderate logging, a functional conservation model also has to include total saving of parts of the forest landscape.
