About Us

A PARTNER YOU CAN DEPEND ON

DSHwood is a dedicated wood trading company dealing in logs, lumber and woodchips from European forests. While we do not own any of the forests, industry or equipment, we manage the entire trade process from harvest to end-user supply, buying directly from our suppliers and selling directly to the end-users.

We supply significant volumes of high-quality softwood and hardwood to major markets across the globe. Our sales organisation is well-equipped to take advantage of fluctuations in different markets to the benefit of our customers. A successful collaboration with a number of sawmills and traders in all regions enables us to trade logs, lumber and biomass.

DSHwood originated in 1967 as a trading office of the Danish Forest Association, the trade organisation of private forest owners, to develop export opportunities for Danish wood. In 2000, DSHwood became an independent subsidiary of the Danish Forest Association.

We believe that a stable, long-term relationship is critical to keeping up a secure supply through the value chain. We are well integrated in the European forestry and wood business and represented by our own staff in all sales markets all over the world.

Economies of scale make us the most efficient in all aspects of purchase through logistics and sales, enabling us to meet all our customers’ requirements.

Therefore, DSHwood focuses on long-term relations with both customers and suppliers, relying on building a relationship of trust.

Message From The CEO, DSHwood

Rasmus Grønborg Bak

Without forests we cannot survive. Forests breathe from the Earth by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and produce oxygen. They store the carbon, and help to regulate climate, absorbing nearly 40 per cent of the fossil-fuel emissions we humans produce.
Forests also provide fuel for cooking and warmth, medicinal plants, food, wildlife habitat, clean water, spiritual and cultural touchstones, and for many, the means to earn a living.
Managed responsibly, forest products like wood can be taken out and value from them can be added – all without disturbing the forests themselves.
This is why we at DSHwood only trade in wood-related products, either from certified forests or with a traceability being sourced from legal sources.
We call it Sustainable Forestry!
