2 Who We Are SA

SAFPA was formed in June 2020 and is a Committee of the Board of the Australian Forest Products Association (AFPA) under a special delegation.

SAFPA represents all elements of the value chain from the sustainable establishment and management of plantations, harvesting and haulage, processing of timber resources and manufacture of products and bioproducts.

SAFPA is a policy development, lobbying and advocacy organisation for our members interests. We collaborate strongly with other industry bodies to ensure the best outcomes for the industry generally and our members more specifically. Our charter provides autonomy to manage State issues and we cooperate with AFPA on any issue that transcends State borders and has National implications.
