Removals in 2019 lower than in the previous year 

In 2019, the removal in Slovenian forests was about 13% less than in 2018. 5,287,863 m3 of timber was felled, of which 3,326,579 m3 of coniferous trees and 1,961,284 m3 of non-coniferous trees. There was still a lot of wood that had been felled due to damage from the bark beetles, and the wind damage in 2017 and 2018. Thus, sanitary felling amounted to approximately 54% of the total timber removals. The total removals represented 87% of the allowable removals under forest management plans.
