Cones and seeds

The annual need for seeds in forest cultivation amounts to 10,000–12,000kg. Most seeds are utilised for forest sowing of pine, while nurseries require a total of approximately 1 500 kg of seeds.

Forest tree seeds are mainly collected from forest tree seed orchards, established for seed production. In connection with felling, they are collected through stand collection from commercial forests specified by forest professionals.
