  • Will the timber industry turn the corner?

    Etiketter: Wood
    Covid-19 has turned the world on its head and the timber industry could not escape the carnage. The saviour of primary, extractive sectors like forestry, farming, and mining, is that they were regarded as essential services during hard lockdowns, which, at least, kept them ticking over during the worst of the crisis. The problem though, is that further up and down the value chain, many other activities were not seen as essential, and as these businesses ground to a halt, demand dropped - which affected the primary producers anyway. / Forestry South Africa

  • The opinion of family forest owners: Natural conditions determine felling methods and direction of forest management

    Etiketter: Forestry
    Forest owners would like to see the end of the debate on clear-cut fellings and continuous-cover silviculture. Family forest owners favour free-choice forestry, where the choice of forestry operations depends on the characteristics of the soil and timber stock on the site and on the owner’s preferred objectives. / Finnish Forest Association
