The aim of this paper is to provide by interpreting the results of fieldwork and aerial photographs, a maximally accurate, regionally comprehensive picture of the position of the actual timberline, the orographical and topographical factors affecting these positions and snow load damage to trees on the fells Aakenustunturi, Yllästunturi and Pyhätunturi. The potential for ascending timberlines in the region is also discussed
