Fellings and roundwood use
On average of the years 1995-2015 the official felling statistics account for only about 75 percent of the actual fellings. Absolutely, this means that on average about 16.0 million m³ per year were not reported.

European Forests Accounts (EFA)

World timber trade
The advancing globalization of markets and the internationalization of policies with regard to forest and wood have put the global wood trade flows into the focus of the public. In order to make visible how the world trade flows are structured with wood products and how they are changing over the course of time, we have been analyzing the global trade of wood products at regular intervals since 1993.
