Sorklonvainio, a forest of 14 hectares, is located only four kilometres, as the crow flies, from the Enäjärvi conservation area owned by the Finnish Natural Heritage Foundation. The foundation purchased the Sorklonvainio Forest in 2006. The forest was found on a website concentrated on selling forest farms. Every now and then, one can find a true pearl on the open forest market.
Since the 1960s, the Sorklonvainio Forest has been left almost completely out of economic use - as well as out of the forest road network. Because of the peaceful history, the region has many kinds of trees with different structures. There are all kinds of forest types, from mixed forests to pine stands growing on rocks and from forests dominated by spruces to those dominated by grey alders. Here and there, one walking in the forest will encounter an old goat willow or an aspen sighing in the wind - with the largest ones being true tree personalities.
The terrain in the Sorklonvainio region is made up of swamps, low ridges, and bare rocks. Inside the area, there are two small fields that nature will have a chance to gradually take back.
