The National Plantation Inventory (NPI) collects data and reports on plantations established primarily for timber production in Australia. It has been doing this since 1993. NPI reports are prepared and published by ABARES.
The latest report is: Australian plantation statistics 2023 update.
An Australian plantation statistics report is published every year. The reports present information on total plantation area, new plantings and plantation ownership. Information in the reports support strategic forest industry planning and decision-making. Data in the reports are collected from private growers and grower representatives, and public state and territory agencies.
