There is one material so versatile, so extraordinary that if it didn’t exist, we’d have to invent it. Wood!
Our forests are amazing places, and forestry and wood-related products play a vital role in the lives of Australians every single day, and always have.
At its most basic level wood gives us shelter, it gives us heat, it gives us fibre and it gives us furniture.
Our sustainable Forest Management Certification and our Forest Practices Code provide assurances that our forests are conserved and managed responsibly to ensure they deliver social, environmental, cultural and economic benefits now and into the future.
We live in timber houses, surround ourselves with timber furniture and demand timber packaging as the environmentally friendly solution to waste.
Modern technological advancements have seen the variety of applications for wood grow. As innovation, imagination and application of this amazing resource develop, wood is now being used to create things that were never thought possible.
Plantation hardwoods, cross-laminated construction slabs, biocomposite timbers from timber residues and plastic waste and more on island processing are all a part of the complex matrix that is today’s forestry industry and we are excited to be sharing it with you.
