This section contains information about international trade in wood products, and about the level of apparent consumption estimated from data for trade and UK production.

A large proportion of the wood and wood products consumed in the United Kingdom are imported from a range of different countries.

Information on imports and exports comes from the Overseas Trade Statistics compiled by HM Revenue & Customs. The two sources are surveys of European Union (EU) internal trade (Intrastat) and customs data for trade with non-EU countries.

This section contains the following topics: 

 Apparent consumption of wood in the UK
 Apparent consumption of wood products in the UK
 Flow of recovered paper
 UK import quantities by product
 UK export quantities by product
 UK import values by product
 UK export values by product
 Origin of wood imports

A copy of all trade tables is available to download as an Excel spreadsheet.
