Research report on harvesting Tasmania's private forests

A new report reviews private forest owners’ forest management objectives, including their intent to harvest their forests.

The report, which was jointly funded by UTAS and Private Forests Tasmania (PFT), was undertaken from March to August 2012 by researchers from the Institute for Regional Development (IRD) at the University of Tasmania, in partnership with PFT. 

The outcomes indicate that private forest owners have a range of management objectives, and that harvesting and selling their timber is just one of these goals.
