Forestry

Forestry is a growing commodity in the NT. With African mahogany and Sandalwood plantations in the Douglas Daly region, Acacia plantations on Melville Island and native forest management in East Arnhem, these projects are currently being grown for many different products for domestic and international markets:

  • Furniture timber
  • Construction timber
  • Pulpwood
  • Essential oils and pharmaceuticals
  • The forest industry is a key employer in these regions. These forestry projects have an estimated value of over $500m
