SCA works actively to make use of the entire tree and all parts of residual streams. The most valuable part of the tree is refined in the sawmills into wooden products. Some of these become window components, painted panels or shelves. Just over half of the log becomes solid wood products. The rest becomes wood chips for pulp production or shavings that are processed into pellets. The bark is used for energy production.
The number of white-backed woodpeckers in Västerbotten is continuing to grow. This success is due to several years of work to recreate deciduous forests. SCA is one of the participants in the project run by the Västerbotten County Administrative Board. “We are proud that the measures we are taking on SCA’s land are helping to create good habitats for the white-backed woodpecker and also enabling successful nests,” says Ulf Hallin, SCA’s nature conservation expert in Västerbotten.
