This document is part of a series of four guidance reports that cover topics related to small-scale farm forestry, private native forestry, and Indigenous managed forest lands. Learn more about the other reports and documents via this link.

The South West Timber Hub is one of 11 similar organisations funded by the Australian Government to provide it with advice on supporting growth in the forest and wood products sector in key regions. The Hub, in south-west Western Australia, encompasses the region from Perth in the north to Albany in the south-east. The region is home to a significant hardwood and softwood plantation resource. The industry is centred on the export ports of Albany and Bunbury, with important domestic markets in Perth. Commercial tree plantations have an important role in managing broader agricultural productivity in the region and the distance from the eastern states means that the region’s plantations are locally important.
