Brexit has raised a lot of issues when it comes to trade. It has been suggested that tropical hardwood imports will suffer. How so you ask, tropical hardwood is not a European product. Well at the moment the majority of hardwoods the UK buys come through the EU. In other words they are landed in, for example Italy and are available to buy for member states. The quantity imported helps to offer a competitive price.

At the moment the UK is the largest EU importer so the price to the UK consumer may well be higher.
