Finland's Forest Resources 

They call it "Inventory."

Finland has been carefully husbanding their forests since the 1920s, and their  consistent and wise efforts have paid off: 

"Compared to the early 1900s, the amount of growing stock in Finland has increased by over 60 percent."


Consider also that they have way less to work with!
They have ~30% hardwood, and 70% conifer. We have just about the opposite here in the Upper Peninsula, 70% hardwoods/30% conifers. 

Pine trees aren't as energy-dense as hardwoods.
