Forestrich in resourcesPeopletrusted to performProductswe believe in

Holmen is one of Sweden´s largest forest owners. We are also one of the country´s largest buyers of wood.

Every year, we procure more than 11 million cubic metres of wood. Most comes from private forest owners or other Swedish forest companies. The wood is delivered to the Holmen Group´s own production units, other forest industry operations and local sawmills.


Holmen Skog’s subsidiary, Holmen Mets, purchases wood from state-owned and private forests in Estonia.
