    Softwood felling site auctions indicate a price increase

    The price of softwood pulpwood has risen to 74 to 75 euros per cubic meter. This increase has significantly impacted the cost of softwood tare logs, which have now reached 77 to 78 euros per cubic meter. This trend illustrates a usual correlation between the prices of pulpwood and tare logs. Positive trends can also be observed in the softwood sawlog market. The softwood sawlog price has reached 85 EUR/m3 on average, but in some places even 96 EUR/m3, as well as the demand for conifer logs has risen.

    Wood prices in the shadow of emergency situation

    The wood market in April and May was still dictated by the state of emergency declared at the beginning of April to fight the bark beetle. In accordance with the established restrictions of the emergency situation, spruce felling sites will be strictly limited until the end of June, which means that not only the volume of wood on the Latvian market is shrinking, but also the forest development industry is stagnating.
