Non-wood goods

By quantity and monetary value, industrial roundwood and woodfuel are most important forest products in Europe. Nonwood goods and services are, however, gaining more importance, which is reflected in their increasing value. In Europe overall 2010 Christmas trees, fruits and berries, game meet and cork were the most important non-wood goods. The total value of marketed non-wood goods represented 15 percent of the roundwood value when comparing countries reporting both values.

In Finland the most important non-wood goods are game meet, reindeer meat, Christmas trees and berries and mushrooms. The highest monetary value brings the nature tourism. In all the nonwood goods represent 30 percent of the total value of roundwood and non-wood products.
