Swedish wood in furniture
Swedish wood consists mainly of two conifer species: spruce (Picea abies) and pine (Pinus sylvestris). Since vegetation grows slowly in our cold climate, Swedish wood has a fine texture and good strength properties. Swedish wood is also very well suited for sawing and machining.
Thanks to its high quality, Swedish pine is often used for furniture. Other uses for Swedish pine are for example wall paneling, floorboards, mouldings, doors, windows and decking.
All Swedish timber comes from sustainably managed forests, where every harvested tree is replaced by several new planted saplings. 70% of Sweden is covered by forest, and we take pride in the high level of protection that we provide, with 25% of the forest area excluded from forestry.
Sweden is the third largest exporter of sawn timber in the world. In Europe, we are the largest exporter of sawn softwood, as well as the second largest producer.
