Forestry north Australia

Stock Photography By David C Hancock

The Tiwi Islands is home to one of northern Australia's most successful forestry projects. Initially, the Tiwis grew pine logs for the markets of Darwin but then moved into Acaccia mangium trees that can be chipped for wood pulp in factories in Asia. The Tiwi Islands are far closer to Asian markets than forestry projects in southern Australia and the wood grows significantly quicker.
