Norway is at the bottom of forest
protection in the boreal forests, caused by the intensive forestry in
the most parts of the country. Norway decided to protect only 1% of the
productive forests, instead of the usual 5 % in the neighbor countries.
There are a lot of small, highly productive areas unprotected. These areas
are the first priority for protection, so the future of big wilderness
areas like Trillemarka are insecure.
Trillemarka - Rllagsfjell
In the central part of Eastern Norway, there is 145 km2 continuos mountain
old-growth forest, with an extensive valley covered by virgin forests.
" A broken country with untouched valleys and mountain sides, rivers
and spectacular small and big lakes, very old trees and forests, and a
huge amount of species dependent on natural forest dynamics.
