The enormous variety of uses and the diversity of operations involved in producing wood products and getting them to market, give rise one of the most wide-ranging and complex supply chains of any industry. From the growing and harvesting of timber, to the sawmill, wood processor or importer, then to the distributor, merchant or retail outlet, or to the manufacturer or joiner and finally to the end user, the timber supply chain comprises a vast number of operations. Hence the sector provides an astonishing amount of opportunities for employment and career development.
