Birch is economically the third most important tree species in Finland and it is the national tree of Finland. Birch is well suited for firewood and carpentry, and birch pulp is used to make paper.

A birch forest is also adorning the new equipment room of the Pharmatory QC laboratory. The new room has plenty of space for new equipment and allows for redesign of the existing QC laboratory to make it more feasible and user-friendly.
