Storm resilience

A notable autumn storm named Aila crossed Finland late Wednesday and Thursday, September 16 to 17, 2020. The storm brought heavy winds and rains especially in the regions of Vaasa, Joensuu and Kajaani. Aila was the strongest storm of the year and the third worst of the current millennium. Luckily it did not cause large-scale damages in the forests. According to the preliminary data, the storm felled around 0.7 million m3 of trees with a total value of 15-20 million euros in all public and private forests in Finland.

Dasos has inspected its forest properties located in the most risky regions and did not find any significant wind damages. Dasos has also insured its forests in these regions against wind, snow, fire and other natural hazards.
