This report provides a quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the Liberia domestic timber market. While the country has developed and implemented significant regulations, laws, and reforms since 2006 around the export-oriented, large-scale industrial forestry sector, timber produced through small-scale logging operations for the domestic market has largely been ignored. As a result, the sector has grown informally, unrecorded in official statistics, with timber produced without valid permits.
