UNECE Timber Forecast Questionnaire

The UNECE Timber Forecast (formerly Timber Committee) Questionnaire (TF) collects estimates for the current year and forecasts for the coming year of removals, production and trade of wood and wood products. Statistics are collected annually by the UNECE.

A revision to the 2013 estimates and 2014 forecast was made on 4 October 2013 to take account of additional information from the Timber Trade Federation (TTF) and Timbertrends (working on behalf of the Forestry Commission and TTF).
