History of LST

Timber production and forestry have had a long tradition in Trhanov. Our company was formed as part of the privatisation process after 1989 as Lesní společnost Trhanov a.s., on the foundations of a former plant of a state enterprise.

We have been developing and growing ever since. We invest in modernising all the processes we use, in the existing premises and we expand our production capacities. As an example we would like to mention our premises in Hostouň, where started KVH/BSH production using state-of-the-art machinery in 2020.

Our long-standing trading partner in forestry is the Lesy ČR state enterprise, we also collaborate with Vojenské lesy a statky and look after municipality- and privately owned forests. We supply wood and wood products to leading domestic and foreign customers who buy roundwood as well as products at further stages of processing from us.
