Private Forestry Service Queensland (PFSQ) is an incorporated, ‘Not for Profit’ Association working for the past 17 years to improve the quality and viability of the private forest resource in Australia.  Any profits generated must be used to further the  Objectives of the Association

 PFSQ forest management systems are Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) certified.

We are located in Gympie, Queensland’s largest and most diverse forestry region, with significant hardwood eucalypt and exotic softwood plantations, hoop pine resource and a strong native forest industry. PFSQ field operations extend all over Queensland and northern NSW with regular consultancy work in Japan, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.

PFSQ combines life-long experience in forest management industries with a team of motivated individuals from forestry, environmental science, agribusiness, horticulture, law, tertiary education and forest research backgrounds.

The team brings together a range of expertise in all levels of vegetation management, forest establishment and management, harvesting and marketing, planning and assessment, stand inventory and valuation, forest research, advanced GIS and mapping, growth modelling, cost benefit analysis, fire management, infrastructure establishment and maintenance, general construction, integrated grazing, as well as representation at a regional, state and federal level of forest policy.

The result is a method of natural resource management that integrates productive land-use systems with best practice vegetation management; weed management, infrastructure and erosion mitigation. Total Landscape Management offers a dynamic, cost effective resilient and productive system of natural resource management that successfully addresses a broad range of environmental constraints and caters to a diverse demographic of landholders and primary producers.

 Provision of the Private Native Forestry Extension Program 

PFSQ is undertaking a three-year program to raise landholder capacity and understanding of best practice native forest management.

This survey will give us a better understanding of current forest management activities in your region.     The key to success will be to make this information widely available and in a format that is easily accessed, understood and implemented.

It will also help us understand the knowledge and capacity needs of private forest owners – that way we can ensure the extension program optimizes your opportunity in the timber supply chain and delivers improvements for your enterprise. 

Complete the below survey for your chance to win 10L drum of Tordon DS and an injection kit.     Private Native Forestry Extension Program Survey

The program also offers a small financial incentive to landholders who attend the 4 Day Native Forest Management Workshop. The incentive is to go towards forest management on their property.
