(...) Oak continues to dominate hardwood consumption, with increasing demand across Europe and Asia; European and American white oak now represents over 50% of all European hardwood flooring production. (...) Despite the slow development of the hardwood processing sector in Russia, exports of sawn hardwood increased significantly in 2005 and were mainly destined for China.
