“Wuudis responds to a genuine need, as Finland is full of forest owners with very diverse abilities
to managing their forest assets. This technology will benefit both individual forest owners, forest

platform and brings together different stakeholders.
Wuudis makes forest management straightforward and flexible, says forest owner and senior
researcher Kalle Karttunen from Mikkeli.Also, Karttunen has Wuudis running on his phone.
“I have taken care of my forest properties for over 15 years, so I want to believe I understand
something at this point.
I got excited about Wuudis right from the launch stage, as it brought new types of daily routines and
interesting business opportunities. With Wuudis forest care work and logging can be planned from
home. The Wuudis service, which brings together different data sources, helps both experienced and
new forest owners”, states Karttunen.
