Picking cones

About 80% of the tree seedlings that are grown in Swedish Plant schools comes from seeds grown on plantations around Sweden. On the plantations so called “Plus trees” are grown. They have an extraordinary capacity when it comes to re-growth, quality and vitality.

We make sure the cones are picked in the right way so the Plant schools will have access to seeds which will grow in to trees 20% faster than it would from regular seeds.

Our workers pick around 100,000 – 150,000 litres of cones every year.
