Forest and timber industry in Queensland
The forest and timber industry in Queensland is diverse and covers activities that include:
- forest growing
- harvest and haulage
- processing and manufacturing
- timber merchants
- pulp and paper.
Queensland's forest resources are characterised by large, highly productive softwood plantations and extensive areas of relatively slow-growing native forest comprising both hardwoods and cypress pine.
These forests support a regionally based processing sector, and most timber is used to produce building products.
