A strong value chain​​

 

Metsä Group’s business areas create a strong value chain where wood is used efficiently. The side streams generated in the production are utilised either as material or in energy production. Products made from renewable raw materials can replace the use of fossil raw materials. 


Metsä Forest

Forerunner in forest asset management


Wood supply and forest services

Metsä Forest is responsible for Metsä Group’s wood supply, forest and nature management services. Metsä Forest serves forest owners and industries that use wood.

Metsä Forest wants to be a forest owner’s best partner – from wood trade to forest management and investment services. We are responsible for purchasing, harvesting and measuring wood, as well as for its transportation to the Group’s production units and other selected customers.

We procured more than 36 million cubic metres of wood in 2018, the majority of which was supplied by Finnish forest owners. We make around 35,000 wood trades per year in Finland. We are Finland’s biggest purchaser of wood and a forerunner in digital services for forest owners – now and in the future.
