Western Australia Plantations – The Missing Piece of the Puzzle

In Western Australia this trend is far worse with the plantation estate in serious decline. This Forest Industries Federation of WA (FIFWA) document ‘WA Plantations the Missing Piece of the Puzzle’ should be read in conjunction with the AFPA document as a supplement to the original work to expand on the specific challenges of reigniting investment in plantations in Western Australia.
