General Description
Abstract:
Roundwood production refers to all wood in the rough, whether destined for industrial or fuelwood uses. All wood felled or harvested from forests and trees outside the forest, with or without bark, round, split, roughly squared, or in other forms such as roots and stumps, is included. Wood that is harvested for charcoal production is also included. All wood production data refer to both coniferous and nonconiferous species. FAO compiles forest products data from responses to annual questionnaires sent to national governments. Data from other sources, such as national statistical yearbooks, are also used. In some cases, FAO prepares its own estimates. FAO continually revises its data using new information; the latest figures are subject to revision. Please refer to the original source for further information on the variables and collection methodologies.
Purpose:
FAOSTAT Forestry is an on-line database that provides access to estimates of the annual production of numerous forest products by country. For many forest products, historical data are available from 1961. Largely, the system provides access to estimates for wood products such as lumber, panels, pulp and paper. These estimates are provided by countries through an annual survey that FAO conducts in partnership with the International Tropical Timber Organisation, the UN Economic Commission for Europe and EUROSTAT (the Council for European Statistics). In the cases where countries have not provided information through the questionnaire, FAO estimates annual production based on trade journal reports, statistical yearbooks or other sources. Where data are not accessible, FAO repeats historical figures until new information is found. The system of production estimates for forest products is complemented by similar estimates for international trade in wood products. Total exports and imports by product category are available at the country level. For a number of product categories, this series stretches back to 1961. For a limited number of product categories in recent years, estimates of trade between countries (bilateral trade) are reported.

Pre-1991 relative shares of the 15 republics of the former USSR calculated based on data available after 1991. The calculated values relate to the regional/subregional and global aggregations only. Pre-1992 relative shares of the Czech Republic and Slovakia of the former Czechoslovakia calculated based on data available after 1992. The calculated values relate to the regional/subregional and global aggregations only. Pre-1991 relative shares of the 5 republics of the former Yugoslavia SFR calculated based on data available after 1991.

Definitions:
Roundwood comprises wood in the rough, wood in its natural state as felled, or otherwise harvested, with or without bark, round, split, roughly squared or other forms (e.g. roots, stumps, burls, etc.). It may also be impregnated (e.g. telegraph poles) or roughly shaped or pointed. It comprises all wood obtained from removals, i.e. the quantities removed from forests and from trees outside the forest, including wood recovered from natural, felling and logging losses during the period - calendar year or forest year. Commodities included are sawlogs and veneer logs, pulpwood, other industrial roundwood (including pitprops) and fuelwood. The statistics include recorded volumes, as well as estimated unrecorded volumes. Figures are given in solid volume of roundwood (or roundwood equivalent) without bark. Production of primary products is reported, even though a portion may immediately be consumed in the production of another commodity (e.g., wood pulp, which may immediately be converted into paper as part of a continuos process). An exception is made in the case of veneer production, which excludes veneer sheets used for plywood production within the country.
