Stara and nature

For a European capital, Helsinki is a very forested city. Furthermore, Helsinki features a number of valuable nature reserves, such as the Vanhankaupunginlahti wetlands and the Östersundom waterfowl nesting grounds. Similarly, the archipelago fanning out from Helsinki offers an escape to nature, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

It is no wonder that the residents of Helsinki love their forests, meadows and beaches. The city's nature trails are actively used by dog walkers, berry pickers and Nordic walkers. The management of Helsinki's magnificent nature is patient work.

Stara takes care of Helsinki's urban nature on land, sea and forests and also keeps the coastal waters and islands clean.
