Statskog owns and manages about 59,000 km2 of lands, about a fifth of the area of mainland Norway. Our properties are in Troms and Nordland counties and larger areas in southern Norway.
Fully 80 percent of Statskog's areas are above timberline. Slightly less than 40 percent of the areas are waters protected by the former conservation law, now replaced by the nature diversity law. Slightly less than 20 percent of the total area comprises forests.
Land ownership is of two sorts:
  • ordinary public lands in Troms and Nordland counties and in Southern Norway
  • Crown lands in Southern Norway 
Statskog aims to act as well as to cooperate with others to
  • manage, operate and develop State-owned forests and mountain properties and their associated resources and ancillary activities
  • operate properties efficiently with the goal of attaining satisfactory financial results
  • employ conservation measures and take consideration of outdoor life
  • use resources in a balanced manner; preserve and further develop renewable resources
