The forest-based sector in Estonia

Abundant local forest resources and relevant know-how provided the foundation for a well-developed, competitive and innovative Estonian forest-based sector. Its added value of production increased by 6.9% in 2015, which is considerably faster than the growth of the overall economy and the manufacturing industry. The forest and wood sectors combined play a significant role in the country’s economy, employing around 38,000 people, which represents 6.1% of total employment in Estonia.
