Get fluent in the language of wood with the ultimate guide to Australia’s forestry terms!

The Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) has released an updated version of Australia’s forests and forestry glossary.

A continuation of the glossary published in Australia’s state of the forests report 2018, the updated document will serve as the definitive resource for the interpretation and use of forest and forestry terms in Australia, by bringing together a common set of words and phrases with consistent definitions.

Designed to be compatible with the existing FWPA WoodSolutions and ForestLearning glossaries, this new publication takes inspiration from the respected Dictionary of forestry, published by the Society of American Foresters.

The glossary will be an evolving resource, updated periodically. It is available as both a searchable web format and accessible A4 PDF, via the Forests Australia and ABARES websites. An A5 hardcopy booklet is currently under development and will be released at a later date.

Australia’s forests and forestry glossary is suitable for use by the public, educators, students, government employees and those working in forests, forest management and forestry. Make sure you check it out and circulate amongst your networks!
