The Cat Herd

CatHerd

The other day Forico CEO Bryan Hayes described the Tasmanian forest industry as a Herd of Cats. I would add very FERAL cats!!

And just the other day Private Forests Tasmania released the first ever Tasmanian Forest Industry Directory.

This is your guide to THE CAT HERD!!

I should say that it is a great leap forward for the forest industry. I am astonished it has taken so long to produce such a directory.

At least everyone now knows who the cats are.

Very few of these cats are cooperating to build and grow the forest industry.

None of them have a plan for the future.

That will be the job of the new Tasmanian Forest Products Association; to sort out this herd of disparate feral cats. Some will need to be euthanased! Hopefully the better ones can be tamed and brought into line.

Go to the PFT website and checkout the new directory.

Mind you don’t get scratched!

PS. I should say that not all of the Cat Herd is in the new directory, because the Herd definitely includes wood traders and retailers, manufacturers and craftspeople, builders, cabinetmakers, luthiers, etc. It even includes us all as consumers. 

So if we want a new beginning for the forest industry then we all need to change our thinking and behaviour.

Cheers!

  1. Gordon, as far as I am aware the first PFT Forest Industry Directory was put together by PFT back in the 1990’s, was annually updated and was later available via the PFT site.

    • Hi Arthur,

      I’m aware of the previous directory that only included processors. Was there also a previous directory that was as comprehensive as this new one? If so I don’t remember it.
