Australia’s forests at a glance 2014

Australia’s Forests at a Glance 2014 is a pocket-book compendium of data and information about Australia’s native forests and industrial plantations. Much of the data is current to 2012-13 and all has been published in detailed reports.

The pocket-book covers forest types, areas and how native forests – including old growth forests – are conserved and managed. It also covers wood harvesting, production and consumption of wood products and employment in the forestry and wood products industries, forest certification and codes of practice.

South Australian Cellulosic Value Chain Technology Roadmap (Stage 2)

On 30 September 2013 Stage 2 of the report was released in partnership with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland: “Future options for the cellulosic fibre value chain in the Green Triangle, South Australia: strategic technology roadmaps, business cases and policy recommendations”

Summary

The forest and wood products industry and associated value chain, along with many other Australian
manufacturing industries, have experienced a very difficult decade, peaking in recent times from the
exceptional circumstances created by the global financial crisis and increased globalisation. Coupled
with internal factors such as a lack of re-investment, aging equipment and poor management decisions
have resulted in a significant reduction in industry profitability and a loss of employment opportunities
that have combined to create an atmosphere of doom and gloom in the crisis situation that exists
today.
