  • FSO – Higher timber prices boost timber harvesting in 2021
SVI 27. July 2022 0 Comments

At just under 5 million cubic meters, a total of 4% more timber was harvested in 2021 than in the previous year. Logs accounted for 2.5 million cubic meters – an increase of 6%. Energy wood confirmed its important position in the energy supply. In the process, demand for logs increased again and higher timber prices reduced the deficits of forestry operations. This is shown by the forestry statistics of the Federal Statistical Office (FSO) and the forestry test farm network of the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN). BFS Link
