ABOUT

Who We Are

TFPA was formed in June 2020 and is a Committee of the Board of the Australian Forest Products Association (AFPA) under a special delegation. We have 14 founding members who are leading forest growers and processors in Tasmania.

TFPA represents all elements of the value chain from the sustainable harvesting of plantations and multiple use natural forest resource including forest establishment and management, harvesting and haulage, processing of timber resources and manufacture of pulp, paper and bioproducts.

TFPA is a policy development, lobbying and advocacy organisation for our members interests. We collaborate strongly with other industry bodies to ensure the best outcomes for the industry generally and our members more specifically. Our charter provides autonomy to manage State issues and we cooperate with AFPA on any issue that transcends State borders and has National implications.

TFPA have established a sub-committee structure to ensure the range of issues affecting the industry in Tasmania are actively managed and that the workload is shared across the membership.
