We grow a sustainable future

With a history dating back 400 years and a forest production cycle of almost 100 years, taking a long-term approach is more than an empty buzzword to us. It’s a perspective that runs through every aspect of our business.

We carry out active and sustainable forest management that keeps economic, social and environmental interests in balance. With an eye on the future we want to continue to develop, contributing towards a better climate, towards Sweden’s economy and to thriving forests and rural communities.
