PFSQ has put together this publication to help everyone to recognize what trees they have around them. The main way to identify trees in Australia is by their bark characteristics.
This booklet concentrates on the 20 most Common Native Timber Trees in Southern Qld.
If you come along to our Field Days you can pick up one of these for FREE.
Native Trees of Sthn Qld
Our latest field day will be at Ravensbourne where an active harvest is in progress. This has to be a ‘must go to’ day for everyone interested in harvesting their native forest.
Call PFSQ on 0754 836 535 or E: [email protected] to register.
For those of you who don’t have a copy of the current code, here it is.
Managing a native forest practice
A self-assessable vegetation clearing code
PFSQ is undertaking a three-year program to raise landholder capacity and understanding of best practice native forest management.
This will include updating the currently available extension material, and producing a series of simple ‘how to’ online video clips on various aspects of forest management – from understanding the native forest practice self-assessable code, through to forest assessment, forest thinning, product specifications, regeneration and fire management.
The key to success will be to make this information widely available and in a format that is easily accessed, understood and implemented.
This survey will give us a better understanding of current forest management activities in your region.
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.
