Purchasing and harvesting in Germany

Wood – on the move

claus rodenberg waldkontor

The most beautiful place to work in the world.

Our approximately 20 well-trained professional foresters are the fundamental building block and basis of our quality forest services. In addition, we have 10 forest superintendents, certified foresters, forest scientists and forest engineers who, as timber purchasers and project managers, oversee and have a handle over everything that is important.

Timber harvesting

Maximum work quality with maximum work safety: Whether our foresters are on the road in a 3-man-team felling motor-manually, or whether our machine operators are on the road in the fully-mechanised timber harvester, or whether the combined operation is the order of the day—quality and safety are always the top priority.

With regular training plus intensive practical continuing education, we ensure that all our employees are always up to date with the latest developments. And with two forestry apprentices at present, we ensure qualified young talent. We have been awarded the RAL Quality Seal for our timber harvesting and forwarding and meet the management requirements of FSC® certification (FSC® License Code: FSC®-C017338), Zertifikat des FSC®, License Code FSC®-C017338 (331 KB) and PEFC, Zertifikat des PEFC (322 KB) .

Timber measurement

Whether single tree measurement in solid cubic meters or bulk measurement in stacked cubic meters, here we are quite traditional and always on the move as requested by our customers. And of course we do not close our eyes to the latest digital app solutions: everything that has the chance to become tomorrow’s standard is tested in-house.


Whether logs or industrial wood, whether energy wood or specially processed, the assortments are as varied as their intended uses. The customer specifies their requirements and we implement them. And, of course, the billing methods also reflect the wishes and needs of our business partners.



The best personal protective equipment is useless if it is not worn consistently. That’s why safety training is top priority for our employees.


“Dedication and professionalism are congruent, work and fun go hand in hand,” as the colleagues once described themselves. There is nothing to add. Our employees are the key to our success.


Employees who are specifically trained are in short supply. That’s why we train our junior staff ourselves. A path that we have been following for many years – one in which we have gained the best experience. Apprentices are welcomed.


For the second time, Germany has been awarded host with the forester of the year competition. claus rodenberg waldkontor has taken over the sponsoring of this competition and we are looking forward to active participation.

Firmly rooted

We are convinced that active participation in the industry and its associations is socially important and necessary. Furthermore, we have a heartfelt commitment to the development and distribution of certificates.


New ideas, new techniques, and new concepts – it is known that in nature, it needs a long breath to work in the forest and planning requires long periods of time. However, in order to be truly successful, you still need an ear to the market and the courage to try something new.
