For forest regeneration, we supply forest owners with species that occur naturally in Finland – pine, spruce and silver birch. This allows us to ensure the preservation of the forest nature to which other domestic species have also adapted. The lushness of the growth spot affects which tree species are most suited for it, which in turn affects the quality of wood.
We always supply seedlings of the highest possible quality. The growth of domesticated trees is 10–30% better than that of naturally generated trees. Breeding has also improved the quality of pine in particular, resulting in straighter and more slender branches. Sawn timber made of trees like this is also of higher quality. Moreover, the genome of domesticated seeds originates in our natural forests.
