[Archive] Revised forecasts of the supply and demand for wood in the United Kingdom

Lead Author: Adrian Whiteman

Home publication [Archive] Revised forecasts of the supply and demand for wood in the United Kingdom

Presents models of wood supply and wood product demand for the UK to 2050. The forecasts show that it is likely that wood supply will increase with demand up to 2025. After that, if no new planting is undertaken, supply will fall while demand will continue to rise (although in this respect there is a wide margin of uncertainty). A continuous level of supply would be desirable for the development of the domestic wood-processing industry. The level of new planting required to achieve this is discussed. This publication is still available to order in hardcopy.
