We purchase fresh pine and spruce sawn logs.
Minimum amount: one truck load.
Diameter: from 8.0 cm under the bark. Timber length: from 36-54 dm (30 cm step, necessary oversize length 7 cm).
The logs are measured and their quality is assessed based on the Estonian volume formula for round timber.
Measuring is per segment. The electronic measuring line uses Visiometric 3D technology with two laser circles. We accept logs 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
