The Commission is responsible for the sustainable management and development of Western Australia’s forest products industry using native forest, plantation and sandalwood products on land owned or leased by the state.

The industry plays a valuable role in diversifying regional economies and contributing to the resilience of local communities. It provides direct employment for more than 5,000 Western Australians working in timber-related industries, including forest management, harvesting, primary processing and manufacturing sectors.
