Strategy and impact
Our research goal is to improve the profitability and sustainability of Queensland’s forestry industries, identifying these key impact areas:
- Transforming forest protection by improving pest and disease management and biosecurity preparedness.
- Advancing genetics using new breeding technologies to develop better-adapted tree varieties.
- Driving production systems by optimising timber productivity and quality and improving soil management systems.
- Advancing timber products and processing.
National research priorities
Our work with the forestry and forest product industries is undertaken within the framework of the Australian Government’s National Science and Research Priorities, the National Forest Biosecurity Surveillance Strategy and Forest and Wood Products Australia Programs, as well as the Queensland Forest and Timber Industry Plan. Our alliances and collaborations with industry, business and other research agencies achieve forest and wood science and technology outcomes at state, national and international levels.
We deliver research outcomes through three disciplines:
