Trees can be grown in a comparatively short time - between 25 and 50 years for softwood peeler logs - and then harvested for use in a range of timber products. New trees can then be re-grown providing a sustainably-managed process for production.
Wesbeam Maritime Pine, Radiata Pine and Karri are sourced from Forest Products Commission of WA (FPC) plantations, managed in accordance with all legislation, regulations, codes of practice at Federal, State and Local government levels.
Although the Australian Government does not have a direct role in forest management, it has responsibility for coordinating a national approach to environmental and industry development matters. It is responsible for ensuring that Australia’s international obligations are met and the provisions of Australian legislation are satisfied.
