KUMEKO - wood trade and forest management
From traditional thinning to final felling
Wood trade starts from the forest owner’s need to manage their forest assets. Contact a wood trade professional at KUMEKO Forest and arrange a forest site visit. You can contact us by phone, email or by submitting a contact request through our website.
We follow national forest management recommendations and the PEFC certification criteria in all our felling activities. We harvest wood with respect for the environment and nature. In addition, we also take the forest owner’s wishes into consideration right from at the planning stage.
KUMEKO Forest buys all types of wood from all types of cuttings, from traditional thinning to final felling. Increasing the efficiency of young forest management and thinning will maximise the forest owner’s financial benefits and increase the value of the forest. We offer comprehensive reforestation services after final felling. Our wood trade services also include plot felling and field edge felling.
The types of wood we purchase include logs, pulpwood, complete trees, logging residues and stumps.
Comprehensive forest management services
Forests require proper management to remain productive. In connection with final felling, it is advisable to prepare a comprehensive reforestation plan that specifies the recommended tillage and planting practices. The reforestation plan should always be tailored based on the characteristics, fertility and water resources of the forest. KUMEKO Forest offers comprehensive forest management services.
Early clearing and the tending of seedling stands are often necessary to accelerate forest growth. This work is traditionally carried out by a lumberjack with a brush saw. If the proportion of trees to be removed is large, it is worthwhile to carry out the work mechanically and collect the felled trees. Forest owners generate sales revenue from the wood from the collected trees. Request a quote for early clearing or tending of seedling stands.
Forest owners or contractors may receive financial support from the state organisation Kemera for the early tending of seedling stands or the management of young stands. Read more about the Kemera support on the Finnish Forest Centre’s website: www.metsakeskus.fi/kemera-tuet
