Again - I'm not sure what you point is?

OK, so Sweden and Finland produce a lot of paper. So?

Deforestation is obviously bad, but as I said before forestry doesn't have to be unecological - it all depends on what you use the wood for and if you replace the forest with new plants.

So yes - wooden furniture's can be quite eco-friendly, if the resources for them are gathered in a ecologically sound way.

But they can also be very bad for the environment if the wood comes from areas that have been deforested and if they're treated with environmentally unsound chemicals and paints.

So it all depends on how they've been made.
