The biennial Tasmanian Timber Awards celebrated excellence in Tasmania’s world-class forestry sector at a gala dinner in Launceston last weekend.

Minister for Resources, Felix Ellis, said that the many finalists across the 12 award categories were a demonstration of the commitment, talent and innovative approach of those in our forest and forest products industry.

“Tasmania’s forestry sector is world class, supplying around AU$1.2 billion annually to the State’s economy, while providing 5700 direct and indirect jobs, many of these in regional communities,” Minister Ellis said.

“The 2023 Tasmanian Timber Awards gala dinner was hosted by the Tasmanian Forest and Forest Products Network, which continues to bring the industry together with a bright vision for the future.
