27.02.2018 − 

At the 27th sealed-bid auction for oak held by the Krotoszyn forest office on behalf of the Poznan regional forest directorate in Poland on 23 January, almost the entire, 9%-higher volume of 1,070 m³ of oak logs was sold; 400 m³ of this was accounted for by veneer grades. Besides the Krotoszyn forest office, oak logs were on offer from six other forest offices as well.

The average price across the whole range of grades was 3% higher at 2,936 PLN/m³. WA1 veneer logs were stable at last year’s level of 3,412 PLN/m³. Peeling oak (WBO), used for producing plywood, fetched 5% higher prices than last year at 3,004 PLN/m³. The sawlog grades of WC0 and WD cost an average of 2,327 PLN/m³ and 1,770 PLN/m³ respectively.

The peak price of 4,650 PLN/m³ was obtained for a veneer log; this equates to a reduction of 15% on last year’s price. This year’s sealed-bid auction was attended by 14 companies from Poland, Germany, Austria, and Estonia; an Estonian company purchased the bulk of the available volume.
