Metsä Wood’s main raw material, wood, comes from sustainably managed northern forests where growth exceeds use. Most of the wood we use comes from forests owned by Metsä Group’s 100,000 owner-members. Metsä Group focuses on sustainable forest management by working closely with forest owners, increasing the proportion of mixed forests and safeguarding the biodiversity of forests. In 2021, Metsä Group delivered approximately 35 million seedlings to Finnish forest owners – four seedlings are planted per each harvested tree in regeneration fellings. Passed in 1886, the Finnish Forestry Act is one of the oldest forest laws in the world. From the very beginning, the Forestry Act has been founded on an obligation for forest renewal after felling.
We use every part of the tree from the stump to the top for the highest added value products. The efficient use of resources steers our operations. We process high value logs into engineered wood products, such as Kerto® LVL and plywood.
