Latvian wood

Latvia is one of the greenest countries in Europe. Still expanding, native, well managed woodlands cover about 3.4 million hectares or more than half of the country. Due to mild, but still nordic, climate, wood is relatively slow grown. Latvian timbers of all different species are known for high durability and outstanding quality. The annual growth of Latvian forests comprises about 20 million m 3 of wood. Of the harvested timber (about 12 million m3/annum) about 35% is pine, 15% spruce, 30% birch, 20% alder and aspen.
