Next Generation Forest Plantation Investment Research Project

The Next Generation Forest Plantation Investment research project conducted through the University of Melbourne, was funded by the Commonwealth Government’s Voluntary Matching Program and co-funded by HVP Plantations, Midway Ltd, Australian Paper, AKD Softwoods, and One Forty One Plantations Ltd Forest and Wood Products Australia administered the project on behalf of the Department of Agriculture and Water.

The aim of the project was to bring a combination of actors together to design and test new models of investment in planted forests. This approach presents an opportunity to learn from past experiences in order to design more sustainable and attractive models for planted forest investment that meet the requirements of industry, landowners, capital investors and other stakeholders.
