UK timber imports from the EU at record levels despite Brexit

UK timber imports from the EU at record levels despite Brexit

An impact of the UK’s departure from the EU single market and customs union on 1st January this year was meant to be a decline in the quantity of UK timber imports from the EU.

This forecast followed expectations of logistical problems as new controls were introduced at the UK border, increased scrutiny of the plant health and legal status of EU wood products imported into the UK, and sluggish economic activity in the UK due to post Brexit uncertainty.

However, not only did UK imports from the EU fail to decline in the opening months of 2021, but they were at record levels for the time of year.
