Sawmills - Larger Mills

previous | next  

The following, more detailed, tables are available for larger mills (those producing at least 25 thousand m3 sawnwood annually) only. This represents a change from previous editions of Forestry Statistics, when a threshold of 10 thousand m3 was used. Further information on this change is available in the Sources chapter. 

These larger mills are estimated to account for 85% of all sawn softwood produced in 2016 (see Table 2.13).  In order to provide consistent time series, data presented in this section for earlier years is also restricted to sawmills that produced at least 25 thousand m3 sawnwood in the relevant year.

The tables cover the following topics:

  • Source of softwood logs;
  • Sawn softwood product markets;
  • Other softwood products; and
  • Sawmill employment.
