And finally…

Just so I don’t have to repeat this experience in 12 months time here’s some guidance for the FT Annual Report editors.

Special Timbers content outline for 2014/15 Forestry Tasmania Annual Report:

  1. Is the harvesting of special timbers profitable? Supporting data…
  2. Is the harvesting of special timbers sustainable? Supporting data…
  3. Review of major events and highlights of the past 12 months? Markets, sales, planning, harvesting, resources, etc…
  4. Outline of major events and highlights of the coming year? Markets, sales, planning, harvesting, resources, etc…

It’s pretty basic stuff really, instead of the mealy-mouth rubbish we normally get in the annual reports.

I also highly recommend reading John Lawrence’s review of the financial management and performance of FT from their 2014 Annual Report. It makes for pretty depressing reading especially when you think about all the political games being played around forestry.

The forest industry in Tasmania hasn’t got a future whilst this madness continues.

Hopefully my next story will be a good news story.
