In Tasmania, the forest industry is a critical and fundamental part of the economy, and the social fabric which makes this island State unique.

Farmers rely on a diversity of activities to sustain commercial viability in a competitive environment. Individual farm enterprises must be able to access the widest possible range of land use options to maximise profitability, including forest production.

Farmers have been managing native forests and smaller plantations and woodlots for many generations and believe that continuing management of all these forests will be vital to the future of wood processing in Tasmania. Privately managed native forests have recently received Forest Stewardship certification and this confirms our belief that well managed native forests and carefully planned plantation investments are the way forward.
