ForestrySA’s primary role is the management of 11,500ha of commercial plantation forest in the Mount Lofty Ranges and Mid North.

A further 23,000ha of Native Forest Reserves is also managed across South Australia, for conservation. No logging or commercial timber production is undertaken in these areas.

ForestrySA also manages more than 25,000ha of plantation in the Green Triangle for forest owner New Forests.

In line with its role as a commercial forest manager, ForestrySA’s main focus is the production of log and chip, which is used to produce sawn timber, pulp, paper and posts.

All forests under ForestrySA management are widely used and valued by the community for recreational activities such as hiking, horse riding, camping and large-scale events such as music festivals and car rallies.

ForestrySA is committed to the responsible and sound environmental management of plantation and native forest and maintains a Forest

Management System certified to the internationally recognised Australian Forestry Standard (AS 4708). The Mount Lofty Ranges forest is certified to this standard. Forests in the Mid North are not, but continue to be managed in accordance with ForestrySA’s Forest Management System.
