The Forest Products Commission is inviting interested parties to submit their expression of interest for the purchase of pine industrial wood supply from 2026 to 2033. Industrial wood is the portion of the tree not suitable for posts, milling or veneering, and typically processed as a fibre source for pulp, paper, fibreboard, wood composites, or energy production.
The sale will encourage ongoing investment in softwood processing capacity and support the State Government’s commitment of $350 million into Western Australia’s (WA) softwood estate.
The State Government’s investment in the plantation estate will help ensure the supply of essential timber products for the housing and construction industry in WA and contribute to the capture and storage of carbon to meet the challenges of climate change.
Full details are available in the EOI document, which can be downloaded from Tenders WA.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please respond through Tenders WA by 3:00 pm AWST on 1 December 2023.
