Figures for wood production (or removals) are expressed in green tonnes (i.e. weight when freshly felled). The data are derived from a number of sources:
FC/ FS figures are obtained from Forestry Commission and Forest Service administrative systems;
Non-FC/ FS softwood figures are obtained from the Private Sector Softwood Removals Survey;
Total hardwood figures are estimated from hardwood deliveries figures, which are compiled from surveys of the UK-grown timber industry, trade associations and expert estimates.
