Earnings from wood and paper exports are 4.2% of world export earnings. This category includes prepared timber, wooden and cork items, paper, pulp and plywood.

Canada, Finland, Sweden and Indonesia export the most wood and paper (US$ net). These territories export almost two-thirds of all net wood and paper exports. Most territories have net imports of wood and paper.

Per person, Finland exports (net) almost twice as much US$ worth of wood and paper than does Sweden, the territory exporting the second highest value of wood and paper per person.

"The pulp and paper mills that accompany the logging industry are notorious sources of pollution" Eduardo Tandem, 1990

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide net exports of wood and paper (in US$) that come from there. Net exports are exports minus imports. When imports are larger than exports the territory is not shown.
