Softwood Timber Industry Comes Together For “Buy Aussie First Timber Campaign”
Timberlink CEO Ian Tyson explained the reason for the campaign, “in normal economic times Australia produces around 80% of the softwood timber that is used to build homes for Australians. The balance of supply is imported. The impact of COVID19 has seen a significant drop in forecasted housing starts, affecting the demand for Australian softwood timber. So we are asking you to BUY AUSSIE TIMBER FIRST.
