Did you know that the cold Northern climate actually improves wood quality?

Sustainable Nordic Wood from sustainably managed forests

​As the climate is cold, trees grow slowly and this is why the wood fibres become dense, making the wood particularly strong but light, and visually consistent.

The wood we use at Metsä Wood comes from sustainably managed Nordic forests.

Benefits of sustainable Nordic wood

  • Strong - Tight grains
  • Light weight
  • Homogenous appearance
  • Natural aesthetics
  • Excellent acoustics
  • Minimal thermal expansion

Nordic wood is sustainable

  • 100% traceable origin
  • 100% from sustainably managed forests
  • 100% renewable: 4 new saplings planted for every tree harvested to ensure a continuous forest growth.
  • CO2 absorbed during entire lifecycle
  • Reliable supply: Our owners have 5 million hectares of forests covering half of the privately owned forests in Finland.
