The department aims to foster and enable productive, profitable, internationally competitive and sustainable Australian forest and forest products industries.
On 12 September 2018 the Australian Government launched the National Forest Industries Plan (the Plan),
Growing a Better Australia – A Billion Trees for Jobs and Growth.
The Plan, jointly released by Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources David Littleproud and Assistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources Senator Richard Colbeck, outlines the Australian Government’s strategy to underpin growth in the renewable timber and wood‑fibre industry.
It provides the vision and certainty needed for Australia’s forestry industry and supports the sustainable forest industries as long-term growth engines for regional Australia.
The plan also supports the forest industries aspirational goal of planting a billion new plantation trees over the next 10 years.
The Australian Government supported the Plan in the 2018-2019 Federal Budget with a $20 million commitment over four years to help implement actions identified in the Plan.
