A report from Brazil shows that the production of native timber has slowed, with two northern states showing considerable declines. These figures are based on production from 2015 compared with 2016.

The production in question is for charcoal, fuel and industrial logs.
The generally held view is that this slump is due to environmental legislation being implemented and adheared to, with at caveat of shortage of labour.

It is encouraging that environmental laws are working.
