This year will go down in history as it marks the introduction of the inaugural Green Triangle Timber Industry Awards across Victoria & South Australia.
The Awards are all about celebrating and rewarding individuals and companies involved in the timber industry for the dedication, hard work and best practises in their various roles and businesses. The event encompasses all sectors of the industry from nursery to silviculture, harvesting, haulage, logistics and processing and everything in between as it is important that we recognise everyone that contributes to the industry success.
The Green Triangle is home to Australia’s largest collective plantation and timber processing industry, contributing significantly to the Victoria & South Australia, generating more than $778 million Gross Regional Product annually. In excess of 355,000 hectares of softwood and hardwood plantations produce timber for local manufacturing, national and export markets. The industry underpins some 8,500 regional jobs and provides a valuable tool for businesses and investors.
What is exciting is that there are many opportunities for further investment, greater production and diversification and further value adding to existing forest processing activities, with ready access to a strong and dynamic Australian market within a stable business environment. We look forward to having you involved with this event.
