This report begins by briefly describing the legal and institutional environment for small-scale chainsaw milling for Gabon's domestic market. The second section presents the survey methods used. Following are the results in relation to both the volumes of sawnwood bought in Libreville and the sector's upstream activities in rural areas. The final section contains the discussion and conclusions.
