Karelian pine

Why is the Karelian pine used in the manufacture of the poles of the Seesyarvskiy Poles Impregnation Plant?

The Karelian pine, grown in conditions of severe northern nature, is a model of persistence and endurance. The special natural conditions of northern regions of Russia, including Karelia, determine the excellent physical and mechanical properties of wood.

The Karelian pine is appreciated by its small layer - close location of the annual rings due to a short growing season. The density of wood in Karelian pine is 1.5 times higher than that of pine growing in the central part of Russia and the European continent as a whole. The thickness of the annual rings of Karelian pine is relatively small, as result of which the tree is very dense, has high durability and strength. In addition, a narrower rings Karelian pine share increased formation of the layer of resin, so the wood has excellent performance characteristics and has an extended period of use.

We could save, buying cheaper wood in the central part of Russia, but we decided to use only Karelian pine in the production of our poles to provide the best quality of our products.

Why the Karelian pine has long been highly valued?

From the age-old Karelian pines were made ship masts, houses and temples. Wood was transported for house-building from Karelia to the center of Russia. An example is the Church of St. John the Divine on the Ishle River in the Yaroslavl Region, built from Karelian pine more than 300 years ago.

The shipbuilders in the time of Peter the Great noticed the absolute evenness and a great fortress of this pine. From the Karelian wood made ship masts for the ships of the Russian Navy. Later, the exceptional quality of the wood of the Karelian pine were noticed by furniture craftsmen. In our museums, mansions and European castles you can find furniture from the Karelian pine; representatives of known families have furnished their palaces such furniture.
