The Logging industry is a crucial cog in many of Australia's wood product industries. Logs are the main input into sawmilling, which supports a range of downstream timber-based activities. The logs harvested from Australian timber plantations and native forests are processed into paper, plywood, veneer, sawn timber, reconstituted boards such as particleboard and hardboard, and other wood products such as poles, postsand piles. Wood products are oftenused as inputs into other activities, such as building construction and furniture manufacturing.
Companies in the industry are primarily engaged in logging timber plantations and native forests, including felling, cutting and roughly hewing logs into products such as railway sleepers or posts. The industry also includes firms that are mainly engaged in cutting trees and scrubs for firewood.
