Estonia: State forest felling quota unchanged at 9,180 hectares in 2024

Estonia’s Ministry of Climate has confirmed the felling quota for the state forest management centre, Riigimetsa Majandamise Keskus (RMK), in 2024, ERR reports. Under the decision, the felling quota will remain unchanged at 9,180 hectares. The quota only relates to RMK’s forest land, which represents around 1% of Estonia’s total forest area. A little less than 50% of Estonia’s land area is forest. RMK estimated that the volume of timber produced in state forests totalled around 3.5mn m3 in 2023.
