A Summary of Studies on the Forest Industries of Australia
Jennifer Holmes - 1993
This report was written upon completion of a series of tours of research facilities in Australia and New Zealand.
While my prime motivation was for personal growth and development, I identified an opportunity to increase my knowledge of the timber industry and assist the industry with its aim to add value to our timber resources.
One of my objectives was to investigate the technologies used in the ilviculture forest management, seasoning, processing industries.
I have summarised twenty nine hardwoods an eight softwoods of both native and exotic species as valuable commercial timbers for structural, non-structual and decorative used grown in Australia.
