|Seattle, WA - Timber harvests in Russia were close to 190 million m3 in 2017, as
estimated by WRI based on forest industry production, log usage and net exports of logs.
The derived timber harvest was up approximately 6.2% from 2016 primarily due to higher
log consumption by the softwood sawmilling sector and the pellet industry. Domestic log
demand in Russia has been on a steady upward trajectory over the past decade, while the
exportation of logs has declined. The largest log-consuming sectors in 2017 were softwood
sawmills (60% of domestic log usage) and pulp (17%).
