Midway at the Forestry Australia 2021 National Conference in Launceston

Last week a number of staff from across the Midway group attended the hybrid Forestry Australia 2021 National Conference in Launceston. A big thanks go to Jinglan Wang for preparing Midway’s media package for the conference and also for her role on the conference organising committee.

Our Midway Tasmania Resource Manager, Michael Schofield, spoke at the National Conference about native regrowth thinning along with Jarrod Burn from Sustainable Timber Tasmania (STT). Michael also helped facilitate the field trip day at an STT site in Cluan State Forest. Midway Tasmania is responsible for the planning and harvest management of this coupe which was also assessed for the Harvest Excellence Award of 2021 Tasmanian Timber Awards. Our harvest and haulage contractor, Orana Enterprises, has won the Harvest Excellence Award.

Midway was a proud major sponsor for the conference and was pleased to see the conference attracted a record of 453 delegates. Please see below to the Midway promotional video for the conference.

AFPA 10th Anniversary in 2021

In Mid 2021 the Forest Industries of Australia will gather to celebrate a very important milestone.

It will be ten years since all our sectors native and plantation, overcame all obstacles to unite under one representative banner to be stronger, louder, more effective. AFPA is turning 10!

AFPA has produced a four page ‘Industry at a glance’ document (available here) laying out the different sectors within the industry, how they operate, the products they provide and the people who work in them.

AFPA has also produced a video marking the associations’ upcoming 10th anniversary, highlighting its achievements in that time, but also looking at the challenges it faces in the years ahead.

The video is available on YouTube at this link.
