North Coast Residues – 2023 North Coast Forestry Project

north coast residues cover

The main purpose of this project was to determine the potential availability of forestry residues for bioenergy generation and other applications on the North Coast of NSW, for three main regional “hubs”: Bulahdelah, Kempsey and Grafton.

The provision of field-based information on residue availability and any potential impacts of extraction support the long-term sustainability of the native forest industry on the NSW north coast.

The dramatic reduction in the demand for pulp logs in the region since 2013 has increased wastage and operational challenges (e.g. increased fuel loads); limited forest management options (by reducing thinning opportunities), and reduced profit margins.
