  • FSA Annual Report 2015

    Etiketter: Forestry
    The positive growth trend in timber volumes, which had started in 2014 and was helped greatly by the weaker Rand, continued for the first three quarters in 2015. Unfortunately, in the last quarter of the year, the impact of the severe drought was felt, when timber volumes slumped to 10% below the expected volume for that period. As a result, where we were projecting a healthy budget surplus for the year, volumes ended up just 0.7% higher year on year and income was 0.6% below budget. / Forestry South Africa
