In June, the reported log volumes in the Tyrolean non-state forest were very low. Due to the storm and the bark beetle infestation, hardly any fresh wood comes onto the market. Due to the large price differences, the province of Tyrol now declares its roundwood prices separately for North and East Tyrol. The Roundwood Price Index (RUPI) refers to the whole of Tyrol.

Roundwood prices list in Tyrol; June 2018:
