The forestry and forest products industry contributes in the region of R30bn a year to the South African economy, and a significant portion of this amount is export earnings. Forestry is deemed a priority sector by the government because of its potential to contribute to rural development and employment. It supports 652,000 livelihoods, despite a growing trend towards mechanisation, which has been given greater impetus because of the introduction of a substantially higher minimum wage from 2013. Broad-based black economic empowerment is a priority for the industry, and many small South African growers have supply deals in place with large forestry companies and producers of wood products. Key challenges facing the sector are land claims and water use licences.
