The JSC "Latvijas valsts meži" incrase timber sales as of 2006.

The Joint Stock Company “Latvijas valsts meži” (Latvia's State Forests) in 2006 are planning to sell 4,99 million m3 of timber, this being in average nearly by 25% more if compared with the previous years.

The director of “LVM Mežs” – a structural unit of “Latvijas valsts meži” – Edvīns Zakovics gives an explanation that the increase of the scope of authorised forest cutting is caused by a well balanced and levelled out annual distribution of maximum authorisation estimate, accepted by the government for the years 2006 to 2010.
