A geographical introduction

Seed sources

Georgia

In Georgia, harvesting is mainly carried out in two regions: Ambrolauri (Tlugi, Nikortsminda et al.) and Borjomi (in the areas Tadzrici and Machartskali).

 

Denmark

Already in the beginning of the 18th century, the first commercial timber stands of Nordmann fir were planted in Denmark (Boller F20 (1895), Tversted F526, and F527 (1900-1901)). The basic material was most likely imported from Borjomi.

 

Russia & turkey

The Northern Caucasus is situated in Russia, and over during the years there has been a fair amount of import of seeds from Arkhys, Krasnaja and most recently Apsheronsk.

The Turkish provenances are especially known especially for their fast and somewhat more slender growth, and earlier flushing.

 

Every year Majland A/S strives to optimise the procurement of seeds from the best available seed sources in Georgia, Russia, Turkey and not the least Denmark, where the production of seeds from selected seed stands and seed orchards is increasing – although not at the pace, we as producers of seedlings had hoped.

In the years to come, we will also, to a great extent, be highly dependent on imported seeds. During the last 10-15 years, import has constituted more than 80% of the total consumption of seeds, and hereof the imports from Georgia alone have comprised more than 75% of the total amount.
