Industrial wood removalThe wood removed (volume of roundwood over bark) for production of goods and services other than energy production (woodfuel).

Explanatory notes

  1. The term ┬┐removal┬┐ differs from "felling" as it excludes felled trees left in the forest.
  2. Includes removal from fellings in an earlier period and from trees killed or damaged by natural causes.
  3. Includes removal by local people or owners for their own use.
Woodfuel removalThe wood removed for energy production purposes, regardless whether for industrial, commercial or domestic use.

Explanatory notes

  1. Woodfuel includes wood collected or removed directly from forest for energy purposes only and excludes woodfuel which is produced as a by-product or residual matter from industrial processing of roundwood.
  2. Includes removal from fellings in an earlier period and from trees killed or damaged by natural causes.
  3. Includes removal by local people or owners for their own use.
