- 96.0 million cubic metres of forest were felled in 2021.
- 95.8 million cubic metres of forest were felled in 2022 (preliminary figure).
- 93 million cubic metres of forest is estimated to be felled in 2023.
- 77.1 million cubic metres (m3fub) were recovered in 2022 for use in the forest industry and for energy purposes (preliminary figure).
- On average, 251,000 hectares were felled per year during the period 2017-2021.
- On average, 290,000 hectares were thinned per year during the period 2017–2021.
According to the Swedish Forest Agency's preliminary statistics, gross felling amounted to 95.8 million forest cubic meters in 2022. Gross felling includes the total volume of wood felled. In 2021, gross felling was 96.0 million forest cubic metres. Harvesting levels in 2021 and 2022 have been the highest so far if we disregard 2005 and 2007 when fellings were very high due to storms Gudrun and Per.
Logging has increased a lot since the early 1950s, when it was between 40 million and 60 million cubic metres of forest cubic metres annually.
