Three Year Wood Production Plans
Each year Forestry Tasmania prepares a Three Year Wood Production Plan (PDF) to inform stakeholders of our intended planned operations on Permanent Timber Production Zone land over the next three years, and also to guide Forestry Tasmania’s more detailed operational planning and scheduling.
This Three Year Wood Production Plan identifies the particular coupes on Permanent Timber Production Zone land that Forestry Tasmania intends to harvest over the next three years and also our proposed road building to enable harvest and delivery of forest products to customers.
The plan lists coupe names, coupe area in hectares, easting and northing coordinates, proposed harvesting, proposed harvest method, proposed future use, and the anticipated volumes of log products expected to be recovered from these coupes.
To view the list of coupes for each region within the Three Year Wood Production Plan, click on the relevant region on the map below.

To make it easy for stakeholders to identify the locations of planned coupes that may be of interest to them, an interactive map is available. Stakeholders can use this map to zoom in on their area of interest, identify coupes that may be of interest and then click on those coupes to identify various attributes including planned harvest year and method.
Forest Practice Plans that have been certified can be accessed from the FPP column within each coupe list table.
Register Your Interest
Forestry Tasmania welcomes stakeholder input to inform our detailed operational planning and decision making. In particular, we are keen to:
- Identify if stakeholders have specific concerns in relation to proposed operations on any particular coupes and want to be informed about future operations on those coupes
- Identify any issues that will need to be taken into account in our detailed planning and decision making related to specific coupes
Stakeholders wanting more information or wishing to register their interest in relation to any particular coupes are encouraged to contact our Stakeholder Engagement Coordinator:

The Three Year Plan provides initial estimates of harvest areas and wood volumes for each planned harvest coupe. As operational planning progresses and more details become available, the figures are revised.
The Plan reflects the completion of Forestry Tasmania’s phase out of clearfelling of Coupes Containing Old Growth (defined as coupes with greater than 25% by area of mapped old growth forest) consistent with Forestry Tasmania’s announcement in July 2015. The 2016/17 harvest year and future years have no Coupes Containing Old Growth harvested by clearfelling.
As part of our efforts to increase protection for Swift Parrot habitat, this Three Year Plan focuses on coupes that are unlikely to contain significant Swift Parrot habitat. Where some coupes may contain significant habitat, our detailed operational planning will exclude this habitat from harvesting.
Please also note that occasionally it is necessary to include additional coupes in Forestry Tasmania’s harvest plan after the production of this Three Year Wood Production Plan. This only occurs where there are specific economic, social or environmental reasons for doing so. Advice of any such additional coupes will be provided on our website as soon as they are included.
