Forestry and timber stories

Special timbers plan released

The State Government has released a draft Special Species Management Plan for a six-week public consultation period. An accompanying statement said: “Unfortunately, while the plan sets out a way forward for the sector, a large proportion of the resource identified will not be able to be accessed in practice until our legislation to unlock production forests and fix up the unworkable application process for special species harvesting is passed … it is highly unlikely that special species can be harvested from these production forests until Labor – who blocked our legislation in the Legislative Council – reverse their opposition to it.” Andrew Denman of the Tasmanian Special Timbers Alliance welcomed the plan’s release. “As the broader forestry sector moves to a re-growth/plantation-based forestry model over the next few years, the special timbers sector, through this plan, has an opportunity to move in a new direction where special timber management is more specific and individually tailored to improve sector outcomes.”
