Description:  Forestry, logging and related service activities
Definition:  Forestry covers the production of standing timber as well as the extraction and gathering of wild growing forest materials. Besides the production of timber, forestry results in products which undergo little processing, such as wood for fuel or industrial use (e.g. pit-props, pulpwood, etc.).

Further processing of wood beginning with sawmilling and planing of wood, which is generally done away from the logging area, is classified to Manufacture of wood and wood products (division 20), and production of charcoal is classified under division 24.
