Managing Tasmania's private forests to the world's highest standards
Timber plantations are environmentally friendly, sustainable production systems for farming wood. The Australian Federal and State government forestry agencies have in place a set of national principals for the management of timber plantations. These can be read in full at the internet website: www.daff.gov.au/forestry. These principals provide the framework for scientifically sound plantation management and encompass a range of important environmental, socioeconomic and cultural issues.
Plantation growers are required to comply with a variety of State laws regulating soil and native vegetation conservation, occupational health and safety, fire control and the management and safe use of approved pesticides. (Source: www.plantations2020.com.au)
