The timber that is used for houses is scandinavian pine-tree (Pinus Silvestris). The timber comes from the forests of Kuusamo area, inside the Arctic Circle. The quality of scandinavian pine-tree and specifically of the pine-tree which is grown inside the limits of the Arctic Circle, is the best of Europe because cold climatological conditions act on the trees and the ground and the result is the creation of polar timber, which is very hard, very solid, with high net weight and mechanical endurance in crushing and bending, with low water absorptivity, high heat insulation and slow burning. The logs come from trees ages 80-120 years old. Factory 2Factory 3
