Strong wood from the northern coniferous forest belt
The slow growth provides the best possible straight-grained timber: branches are few,
and those that exist are small. Growth is symmetrical and trunks are straight and round.
Growth rings are thin and tightly-packed. The amount of juvenile wood is small and heartwood great.
The result is a hard, tough and straight-grained timber with low tension and few internal cracks.
The low-resinous, evenly patterned Finnish wood is first-class material for many purposes.
