OneFortyOne to extend halt on sawlog exports

04 Mar 19


OneFortyOne today announced that as a result of strong domestic demand it has advised customers that there will be no sawlog exported from its estate until at least June 2020. This is a continuation of the position taken 12 months ago by the company and is positive news for local processing.

The Company has found its customers are seeking even more fibre than ever before.

OneFortyOne’s Executive General Manager – Cameron MacDonald said “This is the strongest domestic market we have seen in over 15 years. Whilst local demand remains strong, we will continue to support the local industry by retaining the sawlogs onshore, being mindful not to compromise the long-term sustainability of the forest”.


OneFortyOne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their deep connections to land, water, and community. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations people today.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori communities have a strong spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. We strive to build meaningful relationships with iwi as tangata whenua (people of the land/region), to be responsible intergenerational kaitiaki (stewards/guardians) of the land where our forests grow.
