Eucalyptus and other hardwoods species across Asia Pacific
The pulp and paper sector uses over 40% of all industrial wood traded globally, and paper use is linked with per capita GDP. Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam account for the majority of woodchip exports to Japan and China. This is primarily hardwood chips, but some softwood chips are also traded.
Australian blue gum plantations provide the highest yielding pulping material in the world. The future of the Asian pulp and paper industry depends on high-quality, technically managed, FSC certified plantation supply.
