Forestry consultation on the Timber/Tree workshops

January 23, 2023

A project to develop a nationally agreed approach to prevent, prepare for, and respond to pests of timber and trees that pose significant economic and social risk to Australia’s forest industry has commenced.

The National Action Plan (NAP) for Pests of Trees and Timber, funded by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF), will describe priority areas for a national approach to prevent, detect, respond and cross-cutting issues related to exotic pests threatening Australian timber and trees.

A series of NAP workshops will be held in all states and territories with invited government, industry and community stakeholders to inform development of the plan. The first workshop is planned for February 2023 in Western Australia

Stakeholders will be provided with information about dates and locations for the workshops as they become available. If you would like to register your interest for the workshops or learn more about the project, please contact PHA at forest_admin@phau.com.au.
