Forest Industries Research Centre


The Forest Industries Research Centre (FIRC) is focused on issues as they relate to the forestry value chain, thus the economic and environmental sustainability of forest industries.

The forestry value chain covers a wide range of research disciplines including genetics and genomics, silviculture and stand management, forest health and pest management, ecology and biodiversity management, timber and biomass harvest and haulage, fibre quality and value, timber processing and biorefinery, renewable energy and biofuels as well as timber construction materials.

While these research areas are all important in their own right, from the perspective of the FIRC, they all interact with each other in real ways to have important impacts and we believe a multidiscipline approach is the best to understand and identify value in these interactions.

Forests for the future research seminar series

Each month researchers from FIRC and TFAP will present their current research being conducted in partnership with industry and communities around Australia and across the globe.
