How much do you know about the Australian forestry industry?
Forests are valued for their diverse ecosystems and unique biodiversity, for their ability to regenerate and regrow and sequester carbon, for their provision of wood products and for their aesthetic value and recreational opportunities. Forestry and wood-related products play a vital role in the lives of Australians every day.
The Australian forestry industry is smart, modern and high-tech, and importantly our forests are managed sustainably.
Wood – the Ultimate Renewable
Wood comes from forests. Be it the timber floorboards, house framing, railway sleepers or furniture, responsibly sourced wood is not only sustainable but renewable.
Australian forestry – planning for tomorrow today
There is one material so versatile, so extraordinary that if it didn’t exist, we’d have to invent it. Wood. Grown in Australia, in sustainably managed forests.
Our forests are amazing places, and Australians use products made from wood and its components every single day. Using cutting edge innovation and technology, the Australian forestry industry is committed to a future of sustainable growth where every tree we use is regrown and replaced.
Trees and forests
Forests and forestry are present in many countries across the world. Forestry, where trees are grown, harvested and replanted or regrown for the future is very different to land clearing or deforestation.
See Sir David Attenborough’s documentary on regenerating forests on a global scale and balancing the human impact on forests through careful extraction of the renewable wood resource.
