"the Lack of granfrö has pushed up the price to around 18 000 sek per kilo and forced the nurseries to vacuum the market on the seeds which can be suitable for Sweden, for example, from Finland and the Baltic countries."
"– It was planted about 200 million trees a year in Sweden and then needed 200 million seeds. Now there has been a shortage for many years, " says Johan Westin, the station manager at Skogforsk in Sävar."
"It is many years ago the Swedish fir trees in bloom, but last year's hot and dry summer was just what the trees needed."
"It usually go around the seven years between the really good blomningsåren and now it was a long time since the last time. Last summer was not only hot and sunny, it was also dry from midsummer into July. From experience, what it vouches for the good granblomning and now you can see the result."
"– It blooms right now. Above all, it is in the south of Sweden and along the coast of norrland."
"A proper granblomning means that the Swedish forestry can put out the spruce seedlings in the scope you want and do not need to put other woods on the granmark."
