Timber price development
After a fantastic 2018, net standing timber prices have decreased in the beginning of 2019. We do not expect any significant price changes within first quarter of 2019. However, despite a robust growing national consumption of raw timber and increasing national investments in plants and machineries, uncertainty about the price development within Q1 occurs – a gradually decrease might be the outcome.
