According to data from the Czech Statistical Office, almost 36 million cubic meters of wood were harvested in Czech forests last year. Almost 10% more than in the record year of 2019. The price of wood fell to its minimum. However, due to the policy of the United States and the massive export of raw wood to China, an early turnaround can be expected. There will be little wood and it will be significantly more expensive.
" It's a strange situation. It can only be described as plundering of Czech forests, " evaluates the current state of the woodworking industry the Czech economist Lukáš Kovanda.
