Pine forest with a soul
The pine barrens from my childhood villige … for me is connected to mysticism. It was early autumns on Saturdays. We (Mum!) made lunch pack with warm chocolate in a thermos bottle. The adults brought with them coffee … it smelled deliciously but tasted horrible! It did not look like much berries, though…. . rather sparse. But when I sit down and look underneath the green shiny lingon leaves, I find cluster with plenty of these delicious dark red berries ‘tyttebaer’. The colour play between the leaves and the berries… the reindeer moss and the pine trunks… is still with me… I got like a lunch pack for the life’s journey. What a treasure! And what a lovely evening … coming home to make ‘trollkrem’ (dessert with mountain cranberries, eggwhites and sugar)… silently listening to the ‘Children’s hour’ from the radio… What a richness…

Furua er interessant og spennande! Ho går ikkje etter faste reglar for vekst! Ho snor seg og snur seg etter ver og veksttilhøve. Og så duftar det så godt i furuskogen
Det vanligste byggematerialet for norske stavkirker var furu. Til grunnkonstruksjonen i stavkirkene benyttet man malmfuru som har hatt sein (tett) vekst og derfor har stor malmandel (andelkjerneved). Slike furutrær fantes først og fremst i høyereliggende strøk. Malmfuru er naturlig impregnert og meget varig, selv på værutsatte steder. Slikt trevirke ble derfor foretrukket til utsatte deler som staver, sviller, takspon og veggplanker (tiler).
