Sweden’s largest forest-owner association, Södra Skogsägarföreningen, celebrates its 80 years by telling its history on a web site. We produced all the content.
Since the start in 1938, Södra has worked to improve the lifes of forest farmers. Today, Södra is Sweden’s largest forest-owner association with over 50,000 members. Södra is also an international forest industry group, with operations based on processing its members’ forest products.
A new historica website, Södrahistorien (available in Swedish only) tells the full story of the association’s developmend from small-scale forest farming until today’s international industry group. But Södra’s history is not just about forestry and industry – it’s also about the dedication of individual forest owners and the strength of a membership organization.
The Centre for Business History researched and produced text and images. A number of movies from 1938 and forward are also available.
