FORESTED LAND NOT AVAILABLE FOR WOOD SUPPLY

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Forested land not available for wood supply includes areas where legal, economic, or environmental restrictions prevent any significant wood production.

Context:
Legal and/or environmental restrictions refer to protection for environmental and biodiversity conservation and other protection, including restrictions to ensure protection against soil erosion, avalanches and so on, and for special environmental, scientific, historical, cultural or spiritual interest. Economic restrictions appear in areas where physical productivity or wood quality is too low or harvesting and transport costs are too high to warrant wood harvesting, apart from occasional cuttings for own consumption.
