Fiskars Forests and Forestry

Thanks to the vast forests and waterways, Western Uusimaa was an excellent place to establish iron works. For the ironworks operations such as the blast furnase, a significant amount of charcoal was needed. Over time, Fiskars ironworks acquired large land and forest areas, of which approximately 15,000 hectares still remain.

Below we will soon publish articles, were we highlight the significance of the forests from both forestry, recreational, and symbolic perspectives. The articles are part of our theme exhibition, The Eternal Forest, that opens first of june 2024.
