United by Södra, 51,000 forest owners in southern Sweden are much stronger than they would be on their own. The members and their privately owned forests are the foundation for all Södra’s operations.
Through its industrial base, Södra provides members with an international market for their forest materials. Södra also protects their rights to own and manage their forests by engaging in forest policy debate.
Members receive support in their task of running a profitable forestry business.
Training is organized for members of Södra in order to help them increase their return from the forest. The current Show of Strength training programme is a broad training initiative that aims to increase productivity in the natural environment.
Södra’s existence is good for all forest owners, but best of all for its members.
