previous | next  

Figure 2.4 is a line chart showing inputs to wood-based panel mills since 1994. Categories presented are for UK roundwood, sawmill products, imports and recycled wood fibre. The chart shows decreasing use of UK grown roundwood over the period, whilst the use of sawmill products has shown a slight increase.  There has rapid growth in the use of recycled wood from 1999 to 2007, with a general decline since then.  Very little imports have been used by wood-based panel mills throughout the period.
