Plantation forestry in Queensland
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.
