Norway: Forests and Trees

NORWAY - FORESTS AND FORESTRY Forests and other wooded land cover approximately 37 per cent, or 119,000 km2, of the Norwegian mainland. Of this, almost 23 per cent, or approximately 72,000 km2 is regarded as productive forest.

Natural forest heritage in Norway By Arnodd Håpnes, forest officer. WWF-Norway, March 2003. 3 pages. Central Norway is the only place where the Taiga meets the Atlantic sea. This is the European boreal rain forest, unique in its distribution and species diversity, which means that Norway has an international responsibility for protection of these forests. It’s not only the swarms of mosquitoes that distinguish the boreal rain forest. Climatic factors and a specialized epiphytic lichen flora give characteristics to these forests.

The Rainforest Foundation, Norway - Regnskogsfondet in Norwegian - was formed in 1989 after the musician Sting and the Indian chief Raoni came to Norway as part of a campaign against the destruction of the world's rain forests. Our main focus is in Brazil where we support 8 projects. Since 1997 we have also become engaged in Asia, where we now support projects in Indonesia, Malaysia and New Guinea.

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
