Industry News » Estonian State Forest Management Centre sold 3.2 million cubic metres of timber in 2014

In 2014, The Estonian State Forest Management Centre (Riigimetsa Majandamise Keskus – RMK) sold 3.2 million cubic metres of timber which equals the amount sold the year before.

According to Aigar Kallas, Chairman of the Management Board of RMK, the increase in profit was mainly due to an increase in the proportion of logs in the sales volume. This, in turn, was caused by the improved quality of forestry works and the improved capability of the local processing industry to process thinner timber. In 2014, logs accounted for 45%, pulpwood 36%, firewood 15% and wood chips 4% of the total sales volume of RMK.

RMK estimates its turnover for 2015 to be Euro 169.3 million and net profit to be Euro 35.2 million. This year, the amount of trees felled is planned to be increased to some extent, but as the increase will be made at the expense of managing the forest land formally added to state ownership and unmaintained for years, the proportion of low-quality timber in sales volume will increase, thus decreasing profit.
