Economic aspects

According to an EU definition the Forestry and Timber economy is

to be regarded as a single unit. This comprises the areas of forestry,

the procurement and processing of timber, timber trade, cellulose

and paper manufacturing, paper processing including packaging

as well as printing and publishing. This whole complex may be

defined as the so-called “wood-based cluster”, which accounts

for an annual turnover in Germany of over 100 billion euros and

around one million jobs. This is equivalent to around three per

cent of the gross national product.*
