If you need a dose of nature while in Helsinki, a great option is to go for a walk or jogging in Keskuspuisto, Central Park. It's easy to reach by tram or bus. I recommend going beyond Ruskeasuo if you yearn for more forested landscapes. The photo is taken in December near Ruskeasuo.

Another lovely outdoor recreation is Seurasaari Island. I enjoy walking around the island, but The Open-Air Museum of Seurasaari also displays the traditional Finnish way of life. You can't help running into some badass squirrels and mellow swans. The photo is taken in January.
