About the Forestry Hub

Our Membership

The Murray Region Forestry Hub is made up of the following members:

  • Four local councils (Snowy Valleys Council, Cootamundra- Gundagai Regional Council, Greater Hume Shire Council, Albury City)
  • Forestry Corp NSW, Hume Forests, HVP, (Forest Growers)
  • Forest Industry Council (Representing harvesting & haulage contractors)
  • Hyne Timber Tumbarumba, AKD Sawmills Tumut, and Visy Tumut (Processors)
  • Department of Regional NSW
  • Transport for NSW
  • Regional Development Australia (Riverina and Murray)

This is largely the same as the membership of the Softwoods Working Group.  Other Victorian processors and local government areas are also part of the Hub but are not yet part of the Hub Committee.

Funding

Our Hub is one of 9 that were initially funded in 2019 for three years by the Federal Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment.

In the May 2021 budget, a further $10.6 million was announced to continue the Forestry Hubs for a further three years and create new Hubs in the Northern Territory and south east NSW.
