Forest Growers Levy Referendum Roadshows

If you own a plantation forest, small or large, you pay a levy on the volume of wood material sold.

The Forest Growers Levy Trust (FGLT) is the custodian of this levy money, ensuring it is appropriately spent in areas such as research, development, biosecurity and promotion, to the benefit of the entire forest sector, ensuring growers are well supported and the interests of the sector can be advanced.

The Commodities Levy Act 1990 requires the Forest Growers Levy Trust (FGLT) to conduct a levy referendum every six years. The FGLT will be consulting on the next Levy Order throughout 2024.

Have your say

The FGLT has scheduled 20 regional, in-person roadshows and several online webinars for growers to provide feedback on the proposed levy rate before the levy referendum takes place.

These consultations are an opportunity for the sector to guide the levy investment, discuss the opportunities and challenges and highlight areas of investment that are most important to them.

The roadshows and webinars are free to attend and will run for about 2 hours. No RSVP is required. For more details about the locations and dates visit the Forest Growers Levy Trust website.
