There is also a mutual benefit: this Directory will also help the listed primary wood processors to source logs from the Tasmanian private forest estate.

Out of the Ashes, there is hope - Tasmanian Bushfires
The recent bushfires have burnt thousands of hectares of forests on private land. Both our native bushland and plantation forests have been affected to varying degrees depending on the forest composition, conditions and fire behaviour.
However, all is not lost as fire is a natural part of the environment and enable most native forests to regenerate and grow.
