Norsk Wax has developed a wax, KVAAE, which provides effective environmentally friendly protection for seedlings. This product is applied to the stem of the seedlings, providing a protective coating that prevents pine weevil attacks without damaging the seedlings.
The special white wax KVAAE, suitable for forestry seedlings and a Nordic climate, has been under development since 1992. This wax is now used by both small and large forestry companies across Europe. This method does not require major investments by the nursery.
