The New Forest Industry

Introduction

The forest industry plays an important part in our island's economy both as an employer and as an earner of valuable export income.

The Forest Industry employs one in twenty of the Tasmanian workforce and is estimated to be worth 1.3 billion dollars to the economy.

The New Forest Industry is a reaffirmation of a commitment to communicating openly and effectively with the community.

Through the practice of sustainable forest management, the New Forest Industry supports and complements Tasmania's image as a clean, green, clever, and progressive island community.

Over the last 30 years, community awareness of environmental concerns and expectations have grown and our industry has responded.

The New Forest Industry is formed by associations with interests in forest and land-use issues.
