Wanted: Sustainable solutions for forest residue material

28 July 2023 | Media Release

ForestrySA is on the hunt for new zero-waste options for forest residue material, in a bid to create regional economic growth and further enhance the sustainability credentials and negative-zero target of its operations.

Up to 25,000 tonnes of green resource is underutilised following harvest operations in ForestrySA plantations across the Mount Lofty Ranges each year.

ForestrySA is now seeking new, creative and innovative ways to better use this resource and maximise opportunities for carbon sequestration, circular economy and negative zero outcomes, and the private sector is being invited to play a leading role.
