Timber Utilisation Statistics

The Forestry Commission, in association with the Expert Group on Timber & Trade Statistics, have commissioned Timbertrends to produce a series of studies of the utilisation of sawn softwood – imported and UK produced – by main market.

The reports assess the availability of data on timber utilisation and provide estimates of consumption of sawn softwood by main market: namely, construction, pallets & packaging, fencing and outdoor uses and other markets.

As these reports comprise secondary analysis of statistical data, they are not considered to be Official Statistics.
