Birch Wood Products

From National Tree to National Dog (Part 1)!

veicoall

The Silver Birch (Betula pendula) has been the national tree of Finland since 1988 and there are literally millions of them throughout the country.  The Finnish Spitz was declared national dog of Finland a few years earlier in 1979.  So it seems natural to use wood from the national birch tree to make images and products representing the national dog!   We have a number of such products made by Veico in Central Finland.  We have a key ring, clock, pot stand, and kitchen set.  The newest item we have is a large wall-hanging in the shape of a Finnish Spitz.  This has been made specially for our Society and is unavailable elsewhere.
