Sustainable Forest Management


The Warra Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) site has been established to facilitate the understanding of ecological processes of Tasmania's wet (Eucalyptus Obliqua) forests.  These forests are part of the southern cool temperate wet forest biome.  The programs foster multi-disciplinary research within a long-term framework.  The site contains both working forests and conservation reserves.  For more information visit the Warra website.

The Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Forestry is an Australia wide joint venture supported by the forestry industry, research organisations, state agencies and the Australian Government.  Their mission is to support a sustainable and vibrant Australian forest industry through research, education, communication and collaboration.  For more information visit the CRC website.

Forest and Wood Products Australia (FWPA) directs investment into research and development projects that are vital to the expansion and innovation of forest and wood product based industries.  This includes providing support for the development and promotion of sustainable practices.  The results of FWPA's research and development programs are packaged to facilitate easy adoption by industry with a focus on sustainable growth and profitability.  All research reports can be found on the FWPA website.

The Centre for Sustainable Architecture with Wood (CSAW) is a multi-disciplinary research and education group that aspires to be a national leader in sustainable architectural design and building with wood.  For more information visit the CSAW website.
