Best Wishes from PF Olsen

As the year draws to an end PF Olsen wish Wood Matters readers a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

We know it sounds cliché, but the year has raced by, partly a function of it being a very busy year. Forest owners enjoyed very attractive log market highs in March/April and PF Olsen's Market-Direct sales strategy gained momentum and continued to deliver superior at-wharf-gate log prices. New forest planting has increased but is somewhat constrained by very low carbon prices. And greater focus and innovation in environmental management, health and safety and forest engineering shows tremendous promise. But there's still plenty more work to do. As per previous years, Wood Matters will not be issued in January - the next issue will come out around mid February.
