Goals

GOALS OF SLOLES ASSOCIATION
Wood is the main building material that grows in nature and is renewable. For Slovenia, it represents a domestic strategic raw material with untapped potential.

01. STRATEGIC RAW MATERIAL

History and Culture of Slovenia has been tightly connected with wood, as there is as much as 59% of the Slovenia’s territory covered by forests. Big natural stock of raw material provides us with a chance to primarily process the material into semi-finished products and sawn wood.

02. ORGANIZED OPERATIONS

Closely connected production of timber and trading provides a constant supply of sawn wood and semi-finished wooden products.

03. ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

Collaboration with SLOLES provides responsible behaviour towards the nature.

WEAKLY USED RENEWABLE SOURCES

Wood in numbers

Slovenia exports about 55% of unprocessed timber and then buys back processed at high prices, the rest is mostly processed unsystematically and disorganized.

In addition to the forest, saws and the timber industry, the forest timber chain should also include the trading market.

Slovenian forest-timber chain mostly ends on a forest road; most of the logs are exported to other countries instead of being processed at home.

I never said that wood is not for burning but is not just for burning. The products are value added and enrich the country, only waste is for energy.

It is the sawmill industry that has saved the timber prices from dropping further down after the ice catastrophe.
