This chapter contains information about UK imports and exports of wood products, and about the level of apparent consumption estimated from data for UK production, imports and exports.
Information on imports and exports mainly comes from the Overseas Trade Statistics compiled by HM Revenue & Customs. Estimates are provided at a UK level only. International comparisons of apparent consumption are provided in the International Forestry chapter. Further information on the data sources and methodology used to compile the figures is provided in the Sources chapter.
Figures for 2020 were previously published in "UK Wood Production and Trade: 2020 Provisional Figures", released on 13 May 2021. Some figures for 2020 and earlier years have been revised from those previously published. For further details on revisions, see the Trade section of the Sources chapter.
