Forest tree seeds

Tapio Seed Centre produces top quality spruce, pine and birch tree seeds for forest sowing and nurseries representing almost half of the forest tree seeds used in Finland. In addition to a wide and high-quality selection of seeds, the Seed Centre provides up-to-date expert assistance and works in close cooperation with the leading researchers in this field.

Tapio owns about 400 hectares of seed orchads which produce breeded pine, spruce, birch and larch seeds. Trees originating from seed orchads are capable of producing more and better quality wood material, and they are more resistant to pests and fungicides.
