Over the last 5 years the volume of wood recovered from forest utilization is on a stable level – about 11-12 million cu. m/yr. at the current annual increment 16.5 million cu. m. A stable and predictable policy in timber harvesting in state owned forests (about 4 million cu. m/yr.) is a guarantee of even and balanced utilization of wood resources. In private forests, the volume of wood recovered in the recent years is 6.7-7.5 million cu. m/yr.
