Private Forests Tasmania

Private Forests Tasmania was established in 1994 as a statutory authority under the Private Forests Act 1994, with governance responsibilities that recognise the economic, environmental and social importance of Tasmania's private forests.

Private Forests Tasmania has a Board of Directors who are appointed for their practical knowledge, industry, commercial and technical expertise in forestry and report to the Minister for Resources.

The board oversees strategic direction, and a staff of permanent and fixed-term officers undertakes the functions of the authority. Staff are located in Camdale, Hobart and Launceston.
