Plantation forestry

A plantation forestry carbon farming project involves expanding or optimising plantation estates for solid wood production.

There are two main types of plantation management activities that a plantation owner, manager or investor can undertake:

  • Converting a short rotation plantation to a long rotation plantation;
  • Development of a greenfield plantation site on environmentally suitable land (as either a long or short rotation plantation).

A plantation forestry carbon farming project is implemented on land in Australia for either 25 or 100 years. These projects can only be conducted in regions that are part of Australia’s National Plantation Inventory.

To implement a project on a greenfields site, the land must not have been a plantation in the previous seven years and the establishment of a plantation must not have an undesirable impact on agricultural production, as determined by the Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources.
