Record program for NSW replanting

Friday 11 Jun 2021

 
North coast NSW’s State forest hardwood plantations will see a flurry of activity this planting season, with a record one million eucalypt seedlings set to be planted. Forestry Corporation had targeted its plantation forests for harvesting over the last 12 months to help keep up with strong demands in the building industry, setting the scene for the record 2021 planting season, said Roading and Plantations Manager, Craig Busby.

“In a normal year, we plant around half a million eucalypt seedlings in north coast State forest timber plantations, but this year our hardwood plantation replanting program has doubled. The increased hardwood replanting program is part of our largest-ever program across the state, as we also replant the fire-affected softwood plantations”.

More than 14 million seedlings will be replanted across all State forests this year. Forestry Corporation recently doubled the capacity of the Grafton Nursery to support this bumper replanting program.
