The article contains part of the results of research on the innovativeness of the wood sector in Poland and focuses on the effects of the innovation activity. The research was carried out within the framework of the project entitled 'Foresight in the wood science and industry - research development scenarios in Poland till 2020'. In the wood sector (but also compared to other processing industries) the most modern and active in the area of innovation are furniture companies. Producers of pulp, paper and paper products achieve a level of innovation similar to the average level characteristic of processing industries. The lowest production improvement index, and thus the least innovation activity, is demonstrated by manufacturers of wood products. In the field of inventiveness the wood sector companies do not differ from the average level achieved by all processing industries. Positive changes in the wood industry are observed as regards equipment with technological process automation means, especially high-tech means. Their number has been ever increasing in recent years. The greatest changes were made by manufacturers of wood products (mainly producers of agglomerated wood-based panels).
