Forest Certification

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

Most plantations in Queensland (including the largest private plantation owner HQPlantations) have certification through either the Responsible Wood or Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification schemes. A small number of privately owned native forests also have certification and industry is working with certification providers on systems to better deliver cost-effective certification for small forest owners.
