Plantations bear fruit
TASMANIAN and western bluegum plantations planted in the South West eight or nine years ago are about to bear fruit.

Thousands of hec-tares have been planted and by 2000 and 2001 significant tonnages are expected to be taken.

The wood is expected to be woodchipped at a new plant to be built in the region.

As yet a location for the plant, probably to be run by Bunnings, has not been decided.

The South West Dev-elopment Commission is conducting a study in conjunction with Main Roads WA and the Department of Trans-port to assess how the new plant will impact on the region’s infrastructure.

Woodchips from the plant will be shipped from the port of Bunbury.
