‘Winter bulletin celebrates sustainable forest management’

Forests provide so much. They are beautiful, they keep our water fresh, they clean our air, and their timber is an important renewable and sustainable resource for many of our day-to-day products.

In this, a special 16-page edition of the Bulletin, Responsible Wood celebrates the role of sustainable forest management in protecting forests today and forever.

Reflecting on the latest edition, Responsible Wood Marketing and Communications Officer Jason Ross emphasised the importance of responsible forestry in maintaining the forests biodiversity, cultural and recreational value.

“Responsible Wood and PEFC certification plays an important role in ensuring that forests remain forest.”

“Whether it be the Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagle, the Eastern Brown kiwi in New Zealand, or the riparian corridors along the Tinana Creek-Coondoo Creek crossing on Queensland’s Fraser Coast, Responsible Wood and PEFC certification provides assurance that certified forests are managed sustainably, meeting baseline environmental and social benchmarks for endorsement,” Mr Ross said.

The Bulletin covers the latest developments in the AS / NZS Trans-Tasman sustainable forestry standard, the development of PEFC standards and the importance of adapting national forest management standards to meet local conditions.
