COOPERATION IN TIMBER HARVESTING
We know that the good outcome of timber harvesting is influenced by many things, such as a competent forest contractor and efficient machinery. That is why we have built a network of reliable and professional partners to help with timber harvesting.
We want to be a good partner in the timber trade. We therefore work closely with local forest contractors and harvesters.
Reliable staff and harvesters
The forest contractors in our partner network have been professionals in forest rehabilitation, thinning and logging for many years – guaranteed harvesters. We rely on our selected partners.
When choosing partners for forest contracting, we make sure that our subcontractors’ harvesters are also guaranteed and efficient. The right way of harvesting is a question of honor for us.
SUPPORTING THE LOCAL
We feel our own responsibility as a local employer and therefore we want to support local small entrepreneurs with our own activities. Many of the forest contractors in our partner network have been working as trusted entrepreneurs for Junnikkala for years.
