Swedish by Nature _ Berg & Berg joined Södra, an economic association of foresters and forest owners in southern Sweden with more than 50,000 members in 2012. Since then, almost 100% of the timber used at Berg & Berg is from forests which are part of this association in southern Sweden (the only exceptions being the cherry, walnut and Canadian maple wood). The wood here has a very special character: It grows slower and is thus particularly dense and hard. The trees stand more freely and, because of the climate and the soil, develop a deeper colouring with special nuances, especially the oak. Södra's forests are sustainably managed: a large portion is already certified by the FSC.
