Relatively well preserved forest and mire tract in Norrbotten province, northern Sweden

Description

Information

A relatively well preserved (at least structurally preserved) forest and mire tract south of town of Arvidsjaur, Norrbotten, northern Sweden. It is seen as a dark-green area westwards from the image center with many small lakes (black), aapa-mires (golden brown) and peat bogs (light yellowish green). Some clear-cuts (light green and light brown spots with straight boundaries) could, however, be found inside it. The landscape in the eastern part of the image is more human transformed. There is much more clear-cuts and secondary forests here (various colors from yellowish green to bright green and orange). The red and deep orange polygons in the center of the image are the totally drained wetland tracts converted into peat extraction areas.
