Finnish Sawmills

Finnish sawmills manufacture and market high-quality sawn softwood. Finnish softwood is a versatile, recyclable and low-carbon material for various applications. The raw material comes from sustainably managed and certified forests. The sawmills’ clientele include construction, furniture, packaging and joinery industries, timber retailers and DIY businesses around the world. In addition, sawmills produce high-quality wood chips, sawdust and wood based fuels for the pulp and renewable energy businesses.
