THE Hodgman Liberal Government`s commitment to rebuilding Tasmania`s forest industry is about growing investment, creating jobs, increasing exports and confidence and ending public subsidies. Following the recent announcement of a fantastic $60.7 million agreement for forestry rights for pulpwood plantations, Sustainable Timber Tasmania (STT) will be debt free and well on the way to being commercially sustainable.

Four million dollars was provided in the state budget to back the industry growth plan through various initiatives, including assisting industry marketing and raising community awareness of the value economically, environmentally and socially of Tasmanian wood.

The Gouverent helping to achieve industry growth by encouraging innovation, on-island value-adding, more efficient processing of timber to reduce wastage, and by delivering the security of supply that disappeared as the Labor-Green government locked up production forests.

Both native forest and plantation timber products have a strong, viable future under a Liberal government. It will be a massive increase in hardwood plantation production from 1.3 million tonnes in 2014-15 to over 2 million tonnes a year being produced now.

This important agreement helps to secure Tasmanian forestry jobs and ensures Tasmania`s forest management system is delivering biodiversity and conservation outcomes. Tasmanian timber is a renewable and reliable product.
