    In order to develop the forest sector, it is important to concentrate on the whole value chain, from forest management and to the ready products. Also, in order to increase efficiency and profitability of the wood use while reducing the pressure on the forests, it is necessary to utilize as much of the harvested wood as possible. This can be done e.g. by developing efficient use of other than the most commonly used tree species, by using different parts from the trees for different products, by using process residuals for specific products and by utilizing remaining residues as fuel. Often, an industry located relatively close to the forest can form a basis for new, small and middle-scale enterprises working on products other than the original industry’s, thus generating more workplaces. The more value that in this way can be added to the harvested wood, the more potential financing can be directed to forest management. This fact sheet tells about a good example of such development in the African sawmilling industry.
