The exploitation of Italian woodlands. What is the state of the Industry?

From 1990 to 2010, Italian wooded areas increased by nearly 20%, compared to the 5% increase measured over the same period in the entire European Union (Global Forest Resource Assessment, 2010). Yet this expansion went hand-in-hand with reduced forestry activity in our woods: the volume of wood harvested decreased from 9.7 million m3 in 1995 to 7.7 million m3 in 2012 (Eurostat, 2013). As may be seen from the following chart, the Italian forest economy has ample margin for development in view of better exploitation of the country’s natural resources.
