Australia's forests at a glance

Information in this publication has been superceded by information published in Australia's State of the Forests Report 2018, Australian plantation statistics 2019, and the latest edition of Australian Forest and Wood Products Statistics. A 2019 edition of Australia's forests at a glance, based on the above publications, is planned for release later in 2019.

It also covers wood harvesting, production and consumption of wood products and employment in the forestry and wood products industries, forest certification and codes of practice.

Australia's forests at a glance is published annually, except in years when Australia's State of the Forests Report​ is published.
