in a recent speech, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the government to strictly control the export of logs and low-value forest products and ban the illegal trade in logs. He also requested that "unprocessed or rough processed conifers and valuable hardwoods be completely prohibited from being transported out of Russia before January 1, 2022". This statement will indicate that low value hardwood logs, such as birch pulp logs exported to Finland, may be excluded from future export bans

in order to encourage domestic processing of Russian timber, President Putin also hopes to implement a government subsidized loan program to invest in timber processing facilities, mainly in Siberia and the Far East of Russia, aiming at the growing timber market in Asia. These industrial loans will be used for facilities for the production of wood and boards, as well as for wood grain manufacturers that mainly use small-diameter wood as raw materials

if the log ban is promulgated, Russia will end rdquo; He Guoliang said that his dream is very simple. He has long played a role as one of the world's largest exporters of coniferous logs. For decades, the country has exported a large amount of timber, mainly to forest product manufacturers in Asia and Europe

export of Russian coniferous logs 1. The volume of making various auto parts reached the peak of 37million m3 of washing machine inner cylinder made of Jinmin lightweight materials in 2006, but after the implementation of log export tariffs in 2008, the export volume fell sharply, and fell to only 8.5 million m3 in 2019 (see the figure below)

according to the wood resources quarterly, this downward trend continues in 2020, and the export volume is expected to be only 6million m3. In the first half of 2020, most of the shipments were destined for China (about 75%) and Finland (10%)

in the past five years, the export volume of Russian hardwood logs fluctuated between 7million m3 and 8million m3, but if the export of logs with higher value such as oak and ash is prohibited, this data may decline in the next two years

in the past five years, China has purchased about 10million ~ 12million m3 of coniferous and hardwood logs from Russia every year. If the log export ban is officially promulgated, it will have a significant impact on the future supply of wood raw materials and processed products to China, which may be a more troublesome situation, because China's consumption of forest products is expected to increase
