Good wine needs no bush. This is certainly also true of Scandinavian spruce because the quality of the wood starts, as with wine, with the growing region.

We are talking about spruce. In Swedish, it is called ‘Gran.’ According to an old story, one of the first Dutch wood purchasers in Scandinavia mistook this name for ‘Furu,’ the Swedish word for pine. Since then, ‘Gran’ stands for spruce wood and ‘Furu’ for pine wood.

Both spruce and pine are found in all northern forests, but the quality of the raw material is determined first of all by the natural climatic and soil conditions. These species thrive best between 60° and 65° North latitude, and the tree grows steadily and slowly, just right to produce wood with fine annual growth rings that are strong and evenly structured yet mild enough, making it easy to process. The wood from the Hudiksvall district, in particular, is known for its excellent quality.

Spruce is beautifully light, almost white when freshly sawn, and already naturally suitable or capable of being made suitable for almost any application. From simple building constructions to the manufacturing of high-quality end products, such as window frames, stairs, furniture, laminated trusses, etc. Spruce from Scandinavia is always delivered (kiln-)dried and can even be specially dried in one process depending on the requirements for the end application.
