Metsäliitto to sell its forest holdings in Estonia
Metsäliitto has sold its forest holdings in Estonia totalling some 5,000 hectares to the Swedish forestry group Södra.
Metsäliittos forest holdings in Estonia were acquired in the 1990s partly for growing aspen, says Heikki Karhunen, Senior Vice President, Wood Supply, the Baltic countries. The forest holdings are rather small and scattered throughout Estonia and thus have no major impact on Metsäliittos wood supply.
By selling the forest holdings in Estonia, Metsäliitto continues to focus on its core businesses.
