Forestry Statistics 2007 - UK Grown Timber

Certification

previous | next  

Respondents to Forestry Commission surveys were asked to report on volumes certified. Around two thirds of non-FC/ FS softwood removals in 2006 were from certified sources. 80% of sawmills' roundwood consumption and 62% of sawnwood production by sawmills in 2006 was certified. For round fencing manufacturers, less than one half of total softwood consumption was certified.
