Tasmanian Timber Promotion Board
is a body corporate established by an Act of the Tasmanian Government in 1970. The aim of the Board, as set out in the Act, is to promote the use of wood, in Tasmania and elsewhere. It is charged particularly with promoting timber produced in Tasmania. To discharge this aim, the Board:
researches into the use of wood and its derivatives: sawn timber and timber products;
markets timber and timber products; and
disseminates information on using timber and timber products.
The Board is funded by a Government imposed levy, collected from the sale of all crown saw logs.
