Forestry support programme

Forestry contractors will soon be able to access new funding to strengthen their businesses.

Costing $500,000, the Tasmanian Government's created the Forestry Contractor Resilience programme, opening the lines of communication between contractors and business planners and coaches.

In turn, they would collaborate on ideas for diversification and building business stability and flexibility.

Contractors could then apply for grants of up to $15,000 to implement those identified opportunities.

Forestry contractors can pre-register their interest with Rural Business Tasmania.
