Detailed structure and explanatory notes

ISIC Rev.3.1 code 02


  • Section: A - Agriculture, hunting and forestry
  • Division: 02 - Forestry, logging and related service activities


This Division is divided into the following Groups:

  • 020 - Forestry, logging and related service activities

Explanatory note

Forestry covers the production of standing timber as well as the extraction and gathering of wild growing forest materials except for mushrooms, truffles, berries and nuts. Besides the production of timber, forestry results in products that 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 division 20 (Manufacture of wood and wood products).
