Keeping our reputation intact

The stewardship group ensures our systems and practices meet global best practice sustainable forest management expectations. They also provide support for our social license to operate

This group is also responsible for plantation licence management, research and development, nursery production, plantation health and risk management, community engagement and third party permitting activity. 

Science oversees a comprehensive research and development program focused on tree improvement, forest silviculture, soils and nutrition, and pest and pathogen management. 

Nursery and seed production produces all the Southern Pine and Araucaria plantation seedlings required for our annual replanting programs from our Toolara nursery

Forest certification management ensures our systems and procedures conform to international forest management standards and associated auditing and certification requirements

Community engagement ensures we communicate, consult or partner with our community stakeholders and Indigenous people in a consistent way. 

Permit management for recreation, stock grazing, apiary and occupation permits for our plantation forests. 

Most of the members of our stewardship team hold forest science degrees or similar.

We get to work out in the field in lots of different locations, doing a variety of tasks. But it’s also the importance of the industry that excites me – we’re producing a sustainable product that feeds into an industry that’s really important for housing and maintaining our lifestyle in Queensland.
