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.
