Besides having a whole forestry department and one of sweden’s most modern sawmills that literally can see the timber’s true quality, Fiskarheden has a sincere ambition to develop the sustainable resource that the forest is, beyond timber, paper and energy.
Mankind has built houses from timber for centuries. If managed right, with thinning of the forest, clearing and replanting – wood is renewable in eternity. A few signs in the right direction are; the rise in building of wood-scrapers and the use of wood-pulp in clothing and packaging.
Wood binds carbon dioxide during it’s whole life span, even after the felling and it’s been sawn into construction materials. The residues after the sawing is also used för different environment friendly products such as packaging, heating and biofuels.
