The paper deals with the influence of selected factors on the sawing capacity of small and medium-sized sawmills with a sawing capacity to 99 999 m3/year under the conditions of the Czech Republic. One of the objectives was to analyze the current state of production technology and machinery. In total, data was analyzed from 195 sawmills that were divided into five groups according to the volume of processed timber. A production function was created from the ascertained results in order to determine the sawing capacity for small and medium-sized sawmills. It was found out that sawing capacity is mostly affected by the number of employees. The influence of the degree of mechanization and the main sawing technology was evaluated, too.
