Raw materials

The forest - our raw materials, that grows slowly with a very fine tree structure needs to be treated carefully.

It is important that we do it right from the outset. The customer, through their demands on the structure of the timber, should be able to influence the qualities of their products in the forest. Our pine and spruce, which for decades have usually grown well over 100 years, on our latitudes, have a large share of sound knots, a high heartwood content and are ideally suited for those customers who place high demands on their timber.

Our machine park is equipped with modern technology to provide the conditions to produce the right timber dimensions in the right lengths and quality in relation to the orders that form the basis of logging.

Stenvalls Trä AB has its own purchasing organisation in Norrbotten and Västerbotten. Private contractors with extensive experience manage logging. The contractors we engage are trained in nature conservation, so-called green card, in order to fulfil the requirements set out in the Swedish Forestry Act.

We use evaluation and map software to make our raw material purchases as good and accurate as possible for all parties. We draw up compartment directives so that important information can easily be sent to the harvesting contractor. They also have GPS in their harvesters to support the logging work.

The machines we have available include stand-operating thinning harvesters that perform the 1st thinning and possibly light final felling, medium-size harvesters that perform 2nd thinning and final felling. The machines can either perform mechanised sowing and ground preparations for planting to ensure good reforestation, depending on the agreement with the landowner.

Timber purchasing

Our experienced timber buyers decide together with the forest owners how logging is to be performed. We take into account personal wishes and offer:

  • Purchase of delivery timber- where the land owner himself answers for harvesting and transport to the nearest road.
  • Felling of standing forest timber for sale- where we take full responsibility for the entire assignment.
  • Purchase of delivery stumpage purchase- with fixed price per cubic metre of timber.
  • Logging assignments- with fixed price logging.
  • Purchase of forest properties

Refer to the current Timber price list, valid from March 5, 2012.

Our undertaking includes, for example:

  • Final felling
  • Thinning
  • Clearing
  • Ground preparations
  • Reforestation program
