Figure 2.1 - Deliveries of UK softwood roundwood
Figure 2.1 is a stacked area chart showing deliveries of UK grown softwood since 1994. Categories presented are for sawmills, pulp mills, wood-based panels, fencing, woodfuel and other deliveries (including exports). The chart shows that deliveries have increased from around 7.5 million green tonnes in 2001 to nearly 11 million green tonnes in 2014, with a small decrease in 2015 to around 10 million green tonnes. There has been an increase in softwood deliveries for woodfuel in recent years, reflecting an increase in wood use for heating and energy production.
