The pine tree occupies a special place in the hearts of all Belarusians; since the ancient times it has been revered as a life-giver – a tree that feeds, heals, clothes, warms, shelters, creates wealth, and inspires good fortune. This wisdom is still manifesting today. Over 1/3 of Belarus – or 9.4 million hectares – is covered by forests where the majesty of the pine tree remains undisputedва.

The Belarusian natural wonder is hardly a secret. The Ministry of Forestry has found that in recent years, foreign investments in this particular industry equated to tens of millions of US dollars – reflecting the completion of 42 major investment projects.

Today Belarus is a major exporter of forest products – exporting to more than 20 countries around the globe.

Eco-friendliness and the desire for naturally-derived products dominate the mindset of modern Europe. As such, the demand for natural material like high-quality timber is in ever-increasing demand within the construction industry.

The ruggedness and durability of the Belarusian pine is famed not only within the domestic market – but also in Western Europe, the Baltic region, and Russia.

Belarus understands the importance of environmental consciousness. Forest stewardships restore more than 30 thousand hectares of forest each year.

In addition, the National Forest Certification System of Belarus is recognized by the Pan-European Forest Certification Council.

The Belarusian forest is more than a symbol of national pride; it is a vital source of economic growth and an important natural resource – the potential of which has been fully realized in modern construction. For this reason, Belarusian pine wood is widely regarded as the best in the world.
