previous | next  
Figure 2.1 is a stacked bar chart showing deliveries of UK grown softwood in the last 10 years. 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 almost 10 million green tonnes in 2012. There has been an increase in softwood deliveries for woodfuel in recent years, reflecting an increase in wood use for heating and energy production.
