Wood production

previous | next  

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.

Statistics on wood production are presented for the following topics:

  Summary: wood production
  Softwood removals survey
