Tasmania's forest industries are experiencing ongoing change. Factors such as changing technology, expansion of eucalypt plantations, and changed access to native forests are changing the number and types of jobs created by the industry. There is often debate about the impacts of these changes on local regions - which Tasmanian regions depend most on the forest industry? How are changes to the industry affecting these regions?

Robust data on the employment and spending generated by the forest industry in Tasmania can help inform these discussions. This report details results of a survey of employment and expenditure by the plantation and native forest industries in Tasmania. The primary aims of the survey were to estimate the number of people who depend directly on the forest industry for employment, and the spatial distribution of jobs and expenditure.
