Russia has the world’s largest forest resources and is determined to develop its forest sector. For globally operating forest sector companies monitoring and keeping up-to-date with Russian developments is essential, in order to secure fact-based decision-making and foresee changes. The development of Northwest Russia is also having a wider impact in the Baltic Sea region, where the wood markets of different countries are closely linked and the changes are reflected throughout the region.

The BSRforest information service of the Natural Resources Institute Finland provides information on the most important changes in Russian forestry, forest policy and industry, focusing on key topics. The statistics section of the Baltic Sea roundwood markets contains aggregated data on the development of wood prices and trade volumes, as well as wood price indices, which allow price comparisons between countries.
