Excerpt
Excerpt: Global consumption of total roundwood rose from around 2 400 million m3 in 1970 to 3 275 million m3 in 1999. Despite the sizeable growth, only about 7 percent of the production enters international trade as primary forest products reflecting the fact that over half is used for fuelwood and charcoal, most of which is used domestically. Nevertheless, global trade of primary forest products has risen substantially, reaching US$136 billion in 1999. In addition to this, exports of secondary processed products such as mouldings, doors, furniture, etc. and those of nonwood forest products (NWFPs), such as rattan, rubber, Brazil nuts, oils and medicines, also make a substantial contribution.
