There are many uses for timber within the Queensland construction industry.

Queensland has a diverse timber and wood product processing and manufacturing sector that predominantly processes locally grown plantation softwoods, but also hardwoods and cypress softwood from native forests.

The sector, particularly the secondary processing sector, is also increasingly using imported sawn timber from overseas and interstate producers.

This guide provides information and resources about using wood in construction.
