Finland Tour

In September 2023, a group of 30 foresters from British Columbia travelled to Finland to learn more about the forest industry there and to benchmark forestry practices. They toured multiple logging sites across Finland and visited bio-energy plants, district heating systems, harvesting equipment manufacturers, training centers, data collection companies and bio-product mills.

Some key focus areas:

  • Intensive forestry (thinning, pruning, fertilizing)
  • Fibre utilization / managing for value not volume
  • Bio-products / new value-added products
