The Division of Research and Development develops sustainable harvesting and regeneration techniques for native forests and plantations, and undertakes research on the biology, conservation and protection of forests.

Specialised staff provide research and operational skills in establishing and managing eucalypt, pine and blackwood species.

More than 35 scientists and technical staff are employed to work on over 50 long-term and short-term research and development projects across a broad range of forestry issues. Much of this work is carried out in collaboration with a range of organisations and external academic institutions.

The Division also helps manage the Warra Long-Term Ecological Research site.

Consultancy services are offered in:
  • plantation establishment and management;
  • native forest silviculture;
  • control of pest and diseases
  • and forest health monitoring.
The Division of Forest Research & Development is part of a world-wide scientific community and maintains strong links with scientists both nationally & internationally. These contacts ensure that Forestry Tasmania can incorporate the very latest scientific information in its journey of continuous improvement.

Our scientists also seek to share their discoveries and knowledge with the community through a series of monthly lunchtime talks.
