There are 22,9 million hectares of forests (forest and scrublands) in Finland and they cover some 75% of the total land area. Strictly protected forests cover 4,5 % of the forest land, and if the scrub lands are included, the total number is 8 %. Forests are the most important ecosystem for the endangered species. 564 species (37,5 %) of all endangered species live in forests.
