Forestry

DPI Forestry leads policy, industry development, science and research for the State’s $2.4 billion wood and product manufacturing industry.

The NSW Forestry Industry Roadmap sets out the NSW Government’s long term vision for a sustainable forestry sector.

The Roadmap represents a whole-of-Government approach to the sustainable management of the NSW forest estate, and brings together specific short and long term actions around:

  • modernising regulation and a targeted reform agenda
  • balancing supply and demand to increase business confidence
  • improving community acceptance and confidence
  • driving industry innovation and capitalising on new markets

Forest Industries Innovation Fund

The Forest Industries Innovation Fund loan scheme, Round 1 will open on October 1.

The scheme will provide long-term low-interest loans to projects that contribute to supporting industry innovation and the exploration of new markets for forest products.

The NSW Government is committed to driving sustainable growth across the NSW forestry industries.

Application forms and further information will be available on the RAA website from 1 October 2018.
