We are still open for business; however, all of our offices are closed to the public until further notice. There may be some delays, but we aim to minimise disruption while we continue to deliver essential services.
Our field staff continue to work and are taking appropriate precautions. Staff entering remote communities to provide essential services are well informed to follow appropriate health and entry guidelines.
The majority of Queensland's plantation estate comprises softwood plantations, with only small areas of hardwood plantations.
Plantations are mostly located in the coastal, higher rainfall zones of South East Queensland. These areas produce the majority of the plantation logs used by the domestic processing sector.
Other timber plantations have been established in central and northern regions of Queensland.
Plantation trees found in Queensland include hoop pine, Southern pine, Gympie messmate, spotted gum and African Mahogany.
