Let your raw material
Stay where it belongs
With a radius of about 15 miles from the sawmill Rågsveden we buy the timber that forms the basis of Sveden Trä's business. The raw material from the densely populated trees in our area is the first link in the chain of quality that characterizes our business. By hiring us, your raw material stays where it belongs.

How it works
When you sell your raw material with us at Sveden Trä.
The first contact
After an initial contact with one of our timber buyers, we find out what you want from your forest ownership. Your wishes and our expertise become the basis for the work to be done.
As a forest owner, you always have the final say on what happens on your property.
When we agree on the forestry measures to be carried out, we sign an agreement. The agreement regulates the assignment and includes, for example, which measure is to be carried out in which forest area, which form of business and which payment terms apply and within which time frame the measure is to be carried out. Normally, felling contracts are signed for two or three years.
In connection with this step, it is also recommended that you plan your timber payments. If the payment needs to be split over several years, this must be planned in the initial phase.
Planning of harvesting
If you sell a final felling covering 0.5 hectares or more, you must notify the Swedish Forest Agency at least six weeks before the felling begins. The notification must state which area is intended, what cultural and environmental considerations are planned, and whether the rice will be harvested in the area. Our timber buyers are happy to help with this.
The felling is then planned on the basis of what has been agreed. After the planning is done, a tract directive is made that contains the instructions to the machine group that will carry out the felling. We can now plan the felling with a suitable machine and at a suitable time.
When it is time for felling, we always contact you to ensure that everything is in order. Then we provide the machine operators with a felling directive stating what we have agreed so that they know what to do.
After felling, the timber is driven forward and placed by the road. There it is marked with a unique number that is linked to you as a forest owner.
Transportation & surveying
The harvested timber is transported to a measuring station near the sawmill or pulp industry. There, Biometria* carries out an impartial measurement of the timber. During measurement, quality is also classified.
*) Biometria is a member-owned player in the Swedish forestry industry that carries out impartial measurement of the wood that flows between the forest and industry.
When all the timber from felling is collected and measured, we make a so-called final report to you as a forest owner. The final report compiles the timber value from all measurement reports and any costs are deducted. Total volumes and revenues, less your costs for the felling, give a summary of the final net to you. Which we pay out according to your wishes.
After a final felling, regeneration measures must be taken in the years following the felling. The most common measures are soil preparation and planting.
If the conditions are right, self-rejuvenation with seed trees is a suitable measure. When we agree on how the reforestation will be carried out, we sign an agreement.
