RMK (State Forest Management Centre)

Estonia is one of the most forest-rich countries in the world (per capita) – approximately half of our land area or 2.3 million hectares of mainland is covered with forests, roughly 40% of that belong to the Estonian state. These forests are maintained, grown and managed by the State Forest Management Centre (RMK).

RMK’s forestry duties include the growing and guarding of the state forest, planting and growing of new forest, organising forestry works and sale of timber. RMK maintains forest roads and drainage systems and monitors fire hazard in the state forest.

6,000 people are employed in the state forest each year. There are approx.700 full-time employees at RMK and the rest of them work in the state forest via partner companies or as seasonal workers.
