Description
BRS collects data from major forestry plantation industry operators each year to monitor the total area of timber plantations and the rate of establishment of new plantations. Provisional results of the 2010 update were included in Australia's Forests at a Glance 2010, which was released in March 2010. The total area of Australia's plantation estate increased by 2.4 percent in 2009, from 1.97 million to 2.02 million hectares. That area is comprised of about 0.99 million hectares (49 percent) of hardwood species, 1.02 million hectares (51 percent) of softwood species and a small area of mixed plantings. A total of 49 658 hectares of new plantations were reported established in 2009, 31 percent less than in 2008. The new area comprised 43 231 hectares of hardwoods and 6427 hectares of softwoods. The total plantation area has increased by about 51 percent in the past ten years. The increase is mostly hardwood plantations, the area of which increased by more than 150 percent in ten years while the softwood plantation area increased by 8 percent. The rate of increase has slowed since 2005
