Forest Certification

Queensland’s government owned plantations and native forests grown for timber production are certified under the Australian Forestry Standard AS4708 (AFS) as being legally and responsibly managed.

Most privately owned plantations in Queensland (generally owned by Managed Investment Schemes) have also gained certification through either the AFS or Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification schemes.  However, no privately owned native forests have certification at present.
