previous | next  

Figure 2.1 is a stacked area chart showing deliveries of UK grown softwood since 1994. 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 a peak of nearly 11 million green tonnes in 2014.  More recently, the level has stabilized at around 10 million green tonnes. There has been an increase in softwood deliveries for woodfuel in recent years, reflecting an increase in wood use for heating and energy production.
