Autumn Vibes ~22

Driving from Porkkala in the afternoon we passed this field with the woods in the background  and a river with deep blue water. This sight appealed to me, mostly due to the light, the low light if autumn is beautiful. The lone walker on the road also caught my attention.

Finland is Europe’s most heavily-forested country. Forests take over 74.2% of the land area.

There are about twenty indigenous tree species growing in Finland, the most common ones being pine, spruce  and birch ). Usually two or three tree species dominate a forest.

Naturally pure pine stands are found in rocky terrain, on top of arid eskers and on pine swamps. Natural spruce stands are found on richer soil. Birch is commonly found as an admixture, but it can occasionally form pure birch stands.

About half of the forest land area consists of mixed stands. Rarer species are found mostly as solitary trees. The south-western corner and the south coast of Finland are touched by a narrow zone growing oak, maple, ash and elm.
