In their turn, Russian log exports went down in volume terms, but increased in value terms. In January-October 2018, the Russian log exports came up to 15.119 million m3, having gone down by 4.9% year-on-year.

But the amount of logs is limited. And also the forest is a non-renewable resource. In some cases, trees can take up to fifty years to reach maturity in order to be harvested for commercial use. As a tree grows it sequesters carbon from the atmosphere and that carbon is stored in the wood throughout its life cycle. The carbon forms long chains that are the backbone to cellulose. And cellulose is the primary component of lumber that helps make it a strong and durable material. Many of the products and resources we use every day arrive at our local grocery stores by means of a pressed wood pallet. Pressed wood pallets are a safe, durable, and sustainable way to transport goods and materials needed across the world.
