Within Tasmania, Forico manages 181,000 hectares of freehold land that includes approximately 100,000 hectares of plantation. Natural forest areas within the forest estate are managed for biodiversity and conservation values.
We are committed to achieving sustainable forest management results across all aspects of our business. We aim to demonstrate open and transparent communication to our investors, customers, the community, and our employees.
Our plantations and natural forests are currently certified to the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Forest Management Standard and the Australian Standard for Sustainable Forest Management (AFS) which demonstrates a commitment to responsible forest management. The latter certification scheme is endorsed by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC).
In addition, Forico is certified to the FSC® and AFS Chain of Custody (CoC) Standards. Chain of Custody traces material through all stages of the supply chain, so that Forico wood fibre products can be sold to customers with certification claims.
Forico’s Environmental Management System is also certified to ISO 14001, demonstrating a commitment to develop and review environmental performance, including assessment and control of environmental risks.

Forico’s Forest Management Plan and High Conservation Assessment (HCV) and Management Plan demonstrate how we meet these sustainable forest management principles. These documents are available on Policy and Resource Download Page.
