Our Wood Fuel Disclosure Survey concluded that most of the wood fuel used for electricity generation in the UK is imported and that the volumes of UK wood used are expected to remain constant.</p><p> </p><p>Energy markets have grown in recent years and this has benefited woodland owners and contractors who have increased harvesting rates.
