Nimble News 28 June 2023

FFTITC and Albany's Forest Training Association

FFTITC and Albany’s Forest Training Association is working together to promote careers and jobs in forestry to potential workers, career advisors, students, and to also link employers to organisations that can assist in recruitment.

Attendees at the inaugural working group meeting: (L-R Gavin SR TAFE; Lee-Anne, SR TAFE; Linn, Albany Plantation Forest Company, Murray, Austgum; Michelle, Local Jobs Workforce Australia; Kay, FFTITC; Ben, Worklink & Albany Jobs and Skills Centre; Rebecca, Denmark Agricultural College, Leon, Forest Training Association, Darren, LV Dohnt.)

Did you know:

  • WA’s plantation sector, consisting of hardwood and softwood varieties, contributes over $1.18 billion of economic activity.

  • Most of the production is exported as logs or wood chips. Some wood chips are processed into rayon and made into high quality fabric. The logs are used for particle board products and structural timber for Australia wide consumption.

  • Forestry fights climate change. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, and continue to store carbon when turned into house frames, floorboards or furniture. Wood also has a smaller carbon footprint than popular building materials like steel, aluminium and concrete.

If you are in the Great Southern area and would like to know more, please contact us on 9361 2800.
