Queensland's softwood plantation estate includes large areas of State plantation forest that are administered under the Forestry Act 1959.
HQPlantations Pty Ltd manages Queensland's State plantation forests under a 99-year plantation licence. HQPlantations owns the plantation forests but the State still owns the underlying land and the associated native forest.
State plantation forests are public land. The public is generally allowed to access State plantation forests but a permit may be required depending on the activity and where it is performed.
