Põhja-Eesti Metsaühistu

Estonia’s only named forest owners association – Arved Viirlaiu Põhja-Eesti Metsaühistu – was established in 2004, under the leadership of Kalle Põld. It started with thirty people in Kose Rural Municipality, with more and more people joining their ranks, eventually merging with smaller associations from Harju County and Rapla County.

Today, the Põhja-Eesti Metsaühistu has more than 800 members, the majority of whom are forest owners from Harju County and Tallinn.

FSC Certification. Metsaühistu

FSC Certification

Since 16.10.2013, the Central Cooperative of Private Forests has been managing the FSC forest certification.

The FSC certificate ensures that raw materials are separated from non-certified and uncontrolled forest material throughout the supply chain, making it possible to determine the origin of the material and trace it to the final product.
