 8753936-3x2-940x627The State Government of Tasmania is making of effort lessen the subsidy in the forestry. The Forest Department of Tasmania is now making the state-owned company leaner and profitable.



Now, the government of Tasmania will focus on local forest management and is in the final stages of selling off its hardwood plantations.



The Natural Resources Minister Guy Barnett said that the forest company would no longer receive public subsidies and was on track to save $30 million over four years. There is an increased income for forest products, savings in terms of expenditure and the move from the head office to new premises is a very significant benefit to the budget bottom line.


There’s still a lot more work to do. The government funds have had to be injected into Forestry Tasmania in the past. Since 2013, the jobs at Forestry of Tasmania have fallen from 270 to about 140.


The finances of the Government of Tasmania will be open later this year when its annual report is released. Last year, Tasmania made a $67 million loss.



The Wilderness Society spokesman Vica Bayley said that STT was receiving a financial support by furtiveness because it would be profiting from the sale of state-owned assets.


It demonstrates there are systemic problems still in the forest industry and within Forestry of Tasmania.
