Forestry Corporation of NSW is the largest manager of commercial native and plantation forests in NSW. We manage recreation, environmental sustainability and renewable timber production in more than two million hectares of NSW State forests.
We are Australia’s largest grower of plantation pine, producing enough timber to construct a quarter of the houses built in Australia each year, and produce certified sustainable native hardwood timber. A State Owned Corporation with an independent Board of Directors, our sustainability framework sets out our principles for managing both the forests and our business.
Forestry Corporation and its predecessor Forests NSW have been managing State Forests for timber production, recreation and conservation for 100 years. Our people range from firefighters to ecologists to logistic specialists to Aboriginal partnership liaisons.
