KELO

Dead pine tree is a particularly valuable and rare wood and used for the manufacture of log houses and baths, are in high demand in Europe.

Our company has introduced a totally new and exclusive material onto the Russian market –  dead pine tree  KELO from Karelia and Arhangelsk. In Europe, dead pine tree  very popular in recent years amongst the more well-off people who are looking for non-standard solutions.

Framework came to Russia from the Scandinavian countries.

The Vikings, who lived on the windswept shores of sea winds, knew a lot about the warm wooden houses, so wooden houses from the mast are very popular in Sweden, Norway and Finland.

Profiled timber - building material, has almost no flaws. It exhibits excellent properties as a house during construction and during its operation. And all because it combines the best characteristics of the defined nature to those that are man-made.

Laminated timber

Laminated timber - a material particular. On the one hand, completely environmentally friendly because made of wood. On the other - high-tech: the production of laminated veneer lumber - a multi-stage process that includes a number of proizvodstvennnyh operations.

KELO

Deadwood Kelo is Karelian dry pine, which has amazing strength and resistance to environmental influences. It makes this wood an ideal natural material for constructing houses and baths-houses (saunas).

What is Kelo?

Kelo is a high-quality wood from polar pine that has naturally dried out.

What is special about the Karelian deadwood?

Due to needle wood trees in Central Russia (including pine) in a few years fall to the ground, rot and turn into dust.

Of course, such material is not suitable for construction of houses. Another thing - the Karelian pine which grows near the Arctic circle. In this region the trees grow very slowly gaining a maximum diameter of 1 mm per year. As a result, the growth rings are very thin and close, they cannot be seen with the naked eye. The trunk of the Karelian pine in the Northern latitudes reaches a 30 cm diameter in at least 120-150 years.

For comparison, pines in Central Russia grow to similar sizes for only 60-70 years.

In the Northern latitudes a pine is getting dry for at least 30-50 years after natural death. First, the tree sheds needles and bark, then the trunk becomes silver and gets expressive texture. Gradually the tree "turns into stone" - becomes even much stronger, getting a beautiful shade.

KELO HARVESTING

Dead standing pine suitable for construction grows in Northern Karelia. But finding the right tree is not so easy.

Only 3% of the Karelian pines possess Kelo properties. Unlike trees of a midland of Russia, they are scattered across the forest area and are often located in the most impassable places — on bogs and cliff tops. Therefore it is often possible to reach them only in the winter.

To obtain such a valuable building material, foresters-the loggers travel to a distance of 100 km from roads, moving into the depths of the forest on snowmobiles. Summer harvesting is conducted on special Swedish mini-tractors. On average, at least 500 small logs are used for a house of 200 m2. The right tree must be found, the trunk must meet the necessary requirements, then the tree will be tumbled down and delivered to the camp.

Each team of suppliers has three specialist: the scout is looking for the right trees; the feller fells and checks the quality of each trunk; the collector is responsible for transportation of logs.

HOUSES AND SAUNAS BUILT FROM KELO

In Europe they appreciate this natural material. A large part of the wood is exported in the form of raw materials and semi-finished products from North Karelia to Finland. Then it is sent to Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Germany, Czech Republic and Switzerland. Best ski resorts, hunting lodges, recreation centres, hotels, sauna complexes and SPA salons in Europe are made of Kelo.

You will make the right choice if you decide to build a house out of Kelo wood

The best material for construction is Kelo at the age of 150-200 years with a trunk diameter of 26 - 40 cm . Kelo has unique quality and attributes.

1. The constructions made of Karelian Kelo pine are long-lasting. Such houses can live for centuries. Dried on the root, the tree doesn't rot, shrink or crack. For comparison: walls from other types of wood shrink 15-20 cm in the first year after construction, and the round log cannot withstand the load and start to warp.

2. The surface of a Kelo trunk is silver and the natural texture with twigs, cracks, traces of bark beetles or a moss. So any design decisions can be realized. If you need to change logs colour to white, the top gray layer can be removed using compressed air. There is no need to apply artificial means to keep the natural texture of the surface.

3. There is no need to use chemicals for deadwood Kelo because the dying tree dries out naturally, getting exceptional resistance to the effects of environment and microorganisms. There will never be any bugs or fungal organisms in this wood.
