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. PFSQ’s Constitution as a ‘Not for Profit’ group refers to the membership, purpose and activity of the association. It does not mean that an association cannot make a profit from its operations, but any profits must be used to further the Objectives of the Association and cannot be distributed to the members, directors or staff.
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.
Any profit the organisation makes is reinvested back into the community, specifically, to the Woodworks Museum and Forestry Interpretative Centre, Indigenous and landholder education on forest management, forestry research, silvicultural development (chopper roller) and market development (eg. CCA treated rounds from plantation thinnings).
