What if you could have support to harvest
in a sustainable way?
How do you get your timber thinnings to the market so that you as a grower get a return? We are here to help you get the most from your farm grown native timber harvesting.
Let's work together to develop innovative ideas, create a supportive community and allow our sustainable plantings to yield a financial reward!

trees 'talk' to each so we should too!
We are two groups of farm foresters in northern NSW (Subtropical Farm ForestryAssociation Inc.) and south-east Queensland (Specialty Timber Growers Inc.). We have come together to expand our knowledge and ability to manage our woodlots in a more productive and sustainable way. Many of us have planted rainforest cabinet timbers and seek outcomes which serve both our own purposes and that of the environment. We value the Australian landscape, storing carbon and working for the future.
Growing rainforest cabinet timbers entails a complexity that forest managers with monoculture plantings have never had to deal with. Mixed species with varying growth rates have led us to the point where some of the fast-growing species are dominating the woodlot. The forest needs thinning in order to keep growing and it needs to keep growing to store carbon into the future. This project is about ensuring that this process is managed with credible science, good marketing and sensitive environmental management.
