We take care of the contractors who will provide timber felling and hauling services, supervise their work and measure the amount of timber produced. When logging, the requirements of FSC standards and Lithuanian legislation are applied.
The following types of cuttings are usually organised:
Clear-cutting is possible in mature stands in Forest Groups III and IV. When clear-cutting, the entire mature stand is cut at the same time.
Shelterwood cutting is used for cutting the forest over 2–3 times in order to allow for self-regeneration. Harvesting is usually repeated every 5 years.
Selective cutting is used to remove mature trees from immature stands.
Thinning is the cutting of weaker, poorly-growing trees in order to ensure the good development of the stand and the growing of more valuable timber by the maturity age of the stand, while making use of the stand increment in the meantime.
Sanitary cuttings are necessary to improve the sanitary condition of the forest. Trees damaged by diseases, pests, wind or other factors are removed.
