The Luxembourgish forests are healthy and are of good quality, according to a study by FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Luxembourg with the potential of 25 million euros wood produced in a year. Watch the video (In Luxembourgish only) including a short interview with Luxinnovation’s Wood Cluster Manager, Philippe Genot.

The wood industry has room to grow with currently 1,500 companies directly or indirectly affected by forestry.

Wood is a valuable resource that is essential in our current consumer behaviour. 36% of the surface area of the country of Luxembourg is covered with forest. Luxembourg’s Wood Cluster, managed by Philippe Genot, brings together and connects concerned players who seek to capitalise on these precious natural resources. The aim of the cluster is to get more wood into the Greater Region.

Every year, 750,000 cubic meters of wood grows in the forests and the industry harvests only 2/3 of them. This half million cubic meters would have a sale value of about 25 million euros.

25 % of the forest’s potential resources are quality wood, 50 % of the wood is supplied to the industry and 25% of the wood is used for energy production.
