Germany: Beech Lumber Exports Below Last Year
In July 2011, Germany's Beech lumber exports amounted to 31,700 cubic meters (-4,5% from July 2010). Consequently, Beech lumber exports for the period of January to July were in the red for the first time this year. Measured by export value, the seven-month figures are still positive. Particularly declines in supplies to the U.S., the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy were decisive for that development.
