The Influence of Forest Management on Sawn Timber Recovery and Value in Cypress Pine. The white cypress industry is relatively small by Australian and international standards and is based on the white cypress pine (Callitris glaucophylla), a native conifer with distinctive timber properties. In comparison to many other forest types, productivity is low and tree size is relatively small. Harvesting is predominantly for sawlogs with most logs being processed into timber framing or flooring. In the past much of the sawn product was sold on the domestic market. For the industry to maintain or expand current levels of harvest it will have to look for resource on lands other than Crown land and a stimulus is required to encourage private landholders to manage their forest areas productively. This publication examines some compelling reasons for many private landholders to take a second look at forest management and for the white cypress processing industry to support this. 2005, 88pp, Pub.
