Forestry Statistics is a new compendium of statistical information about woodland, forestry and primary wood processing in the UK. Traditionally forestry statistics have focused on forests as a source of timber and on the use of timber by wood processing industries. However, it has been increasingly recognised that a wider range of environmental and social aspects of forests and woodlands should be reflected in the statistical information that is collected and published. This publication makes some progress in providing more information, but it is still weighted towards the traditional topics that have the best quality data. A more balanced set of information will be provided by the UK Indicators of Sustainable Forestry.
