The latest edition of Forestry Statistics provides the most up-to-date statistics on employment, using figures from the Annual Business Survey. A brief summary of these results is provided in Forestry Facts & Figures.
Surveys of employment in forestry were carried out at intervals of around 5 years from the 1980s to 1998/9. The survey has since been discontinued.
In order to improve the statistics that we produce and to ensure that they remain relevant, we are interested in hearing from people who use our statistics. More information on how we consult users and contact details can be found on our user engagement page.
