In the auctions, wood processing companies purchased from state forestry enterprises some 97 percent (i.e. 954,000 m³) of the roundwood offered by state forests. In total more than 2,400 bids to acquire the roundwood were submitted.

Oak, birch, black alder sawlogs, aspen and ash pulpwood logs were the most popular – purchasers bought the entire offered amount. Demand for ash logs was low – only 71 percent of them were purchased.

09/12/2016 /  New Bright Addition to Radviliškis Avenue of Christmas Trees by UAB Juodeliai

The most beautiful holidays of the year – Holy Christmas and New Year – are quickly approaching, therefore the Radviliškis town eldership has invited all the town’s companies, institutions and organisations to create a stylish Christmas tree to represent their business. On December 2, representatives of companies, institutions and organisations who decided to decorate their town with their own Christmas trees got down to work early in the morning at the Avenue of Christmas Trees in Radviliškis.

Some have chosen traditional ways and decorated natural trees donated to the Avenue by Radviliškis Forestry Enterprise. Companies and organisations decorated them with handmade baubles and company brand colours.

Others used large vehicles to bring not-so-traditional trees of unique appearance, like the Christmas tree of the wood processing company UAB Juodeliai. The Christmas tree of UAB Juodeliai was designed and manufactured by the company’s employees, using the main product of the company – pallet planks.

The newly-arranged Avenue of Christmas Trees saw over 20 different Christmas-tree participants. It gives us great joy to contribute to the town’s decoration and the festive spirit in Radviliškis.
