Germany’s biggest sawmills expected to rise production this year despite pandemic

Germany’s biggest sawmills expected to rise production this year despite pandemic

Last year, Germany’s biggest sawmills again raised their cutting volume. As to 2020, companies are optimistic, too, despite the current pandemic. Most of them want to keep volumes stable or further raise them.

In 2019, German softwood sawmills with more than 50,000 m³ a year saw a further increase in cutting volumes compared to 2018. The companies, which stated their figures, reported a quantity of 29.755 million m³. Compared to 2018, cutting thus increased by another 4%. Cutting was at 24.6 million m³ in 2016. Almost all companies reached their target volumes or even exceeded them. The rather negative reason for these figures: At the end of 2018 and in 2019 as well, storms and bark beetles caused enormous volumes of damaged wood in Central Europe, which led to a good log supply of sawmills.

When adding sawmills with more than 50,000 m³ a year, which did not state their figures, cutting in Germany amounted to at least 33 million m³ in 2019.
