Forests eaten away by clearcuts, mire area, and alpine tundra in Lapland, Finland

Description

Information

Forests eaten away by clearcuts, mire area, and alpine tundra (Lapland, Finland). In the central and northern parts of the image, the remaining old-growth forests (brown-green), vast aapa-mires (deep and purplish magenta, turquoise, blue and black) and alpine (oroarctic) tundra (light magenta and light orange areas on mountaintops, surrounded by old-growth forests) create a mosaic of landscapes. These areas belong to the Pomokaira-Tenniöaapa Natura 2000 site and therefore remain undisturbed. At the same time, the surrounding forestry areas are affected by different types of clearcuts (light magenta, light pink, and light yellow rectangular areas and strips). There is also a large amount of secondary forests of different ages (bright green and light green areas).
