    Timber production (average of last five years)

    - A part of the amount of timber produced is from end-use (shelterwood cutting, clear cutting); the other part is from so-called pre-use (improvement cutting). In the case of end-use the producible amount is used up 90%, while we try to carry out thinning (pre-use) to the full extent.
    The total producible amount is determined to be significantly below the annual production of the forest stocks (increment, accretion), considering a safety level and the extent of perishing. This means that the lumbered wood does not exceed the amount produced; moreover, not even the amount determined here is fully exploited.

    - End-uses only take place in the oldest, so-called cutting age stocks. We only carry out clear cutting in younger forests if trees are perishing. Improvement cutting is necessary for establishing high quality trees with good habits. We perform our work according to strictly controlled methods with limited opportunities.
