Growing tomorrow’s future today

NSW DPI Forestry is proud to support Australia’s sustainable and renewable forestry industries. Through the development and use of technology and the application of strict ecological protections, Australia’s forestry industries are innovative and sustainable, making wood the ultimate renewable.

In NSW, the forestry sector is worth around $2.5 billion, and supports more than 20,000 jobs – more than 40% of which are located in regional areas. DPI Forestry supports this industry by:

  • Conducting robust scientific research managed by internationally renowned scientists
  • Providing information and compliance guidelines to the plantations section
  • Developing a policy program that is appropriate to ensure a sustainably managed forest resource and innovative industry.

The Australian Government Department of Agriculture has developed a series of short videos to raise awareness of the Australian forestry industry and forests as a sustainably managed resource.
