Our well-managed forests are performing well. In fact, since we first conducted a survey of our forests at the end of the 1940s, standing volume has increased by 50% and growth by more than 100%.
When you choose products from SCA you’re helping to grow the forest; for every tree harvested at least two new ones are planted by us. Unsurprisingly, Sweden has twice as much forest today than 100 years ago.
SCA’s forests are home to lots of animals and plants. And our goal is forests to be at least as rich in biodiversity in the future as they are today.
In SCA’s growing forests over 20 percent of the productive forest land
is reserved every year to ensure a rich plant and natural life,
where biodiversity thrives.
