SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE FORESTRY YEARBOOK


The forest industry’s US$30 billion annual export earnings will help the
countries of the southern hemisphere recover from the global economic
recession, says the publisher of the new edition of the Southern Hemisphere
Forest Industry Yearbook. In spite of additional challenges surrounding
climate change and natural disasters – the Chilean earthquake and massive
forest fires in Australia – the forest industries are proving resilient, says editor
and director Mike Smith, from Trade and Media Services Ltd. “Plantation
forestry and the products being manufactured have increased to such a level
that they are an important component in the earnings of most countries in the
southern hemisphere,” Mike Smith says. For more details, go to the web site

REPORT ALLEGES VICTORIAN OFFICIALS CRIPPLED BUSH FIRE


ALERTS
Authorities in the Australian state of Victoria are alleged to have deliberately
throttled back an emergency communications system before disastrous bush
fires swept through the state in February last year killing 173 people, The
Melbourne Age has reported. The article said that the action of the Victorian
government and the Country Fire Authority (CFA) in deliberately restricting the
operation of a new A$108 million emergency communications system in the
lead-up to Black Saturday caused confusion and severe delays in messages
sent to firefighters when the disaster hit. The Age said the revelations were
not aired at a Bushfires Royal Commission set up to investigate the disaster.

CMPC’S MATTEE URGES BRAZIL TO WELCOME COMPETITION IN


ECONOMY
The president of Chile’s CMPC Brazil Eliodoro Matte has urged Brazilian
businesses to welcome the opening up of economies to greater competition,
Diario Financiero has reported. He said the opening of Chile’s economy in
the 1980’s had allowed exports to multiply eight times and imports by 10.
Matte was addressing the XXIII meeting of the Freedom Forum, organised by
the Institute of Management Studies in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande Do
Sul. He said that the free market permitted the development of economies
through trade and exchange, and he urged businesses to resist calls for
greater intervention by the state in the economy, as occurred during the onset
of the recession last year.

INDUSTRY WELCOMES ASIC INVESTMENT DISCLOSURE PAPER


Industry groups are welcoming the release of an official consultation paper
aimed at improving disclosure for retain investors involved in agribusiness
managed investment schemes. The Australian Securities and Investments
Commission (ASIC) consultation paper presents for public comment a draft
set of “disclosure benchmarks” developed by ASIC to enhance investor
protection. The Australian Plantation Products and Paper Industry Council
(A3P) and the National Association of Forest Industries (NAFI) welcomed the
paper’s release. A statement said that A3P, and the plantation industry at
large, strongly support appropriate levels of investor protection as a matter of
principle, particularly for retail investors, who comprise the majority of those
joining forestry schemes

GREAT SOUTHERN, TIMBERCORP CLIENT FILES UNDER SCRUTINY


Investordaily.com is reporting that corporate watchdog ASIC has gone to
ground over speculation it is reviewing client files of dealer groups linked to
failed agribusiness firms Great Southern and Timbercorp. The web site
reported that industry sources claimed ASIC began a broad sweeping review
in September last year of client documents from Australian financial services
licensees (AFSL) with exposure to the agribusiness firms. A source backed
THE claim, suggesting ASIC's call for specific client details would be used to
determine whether the advisers used a one-size-fits-all advice model.

PAPERLINX CLOSING TASMANIA MILL, CHANGING TO MERCHANT-


ONLY
Australia’s PaperlinX Ltd is closing its Burnie Mill in Tasmania, leaving it as a
paper merchanting outfit. The closure of the remaining operations at the
Burnie Mill is the final stage of PaperlinX’s exit from its Tasmanian paper
manufacturing operations with the balance of operations already closed, a
company statement said. Commenting on this decision, PaperlinX Managing
Director, Tom Park said, “This has been a long and complex process and
while it is disappointing that we have not been able to find a sustainable
outcome for the Burnie operations we do believe that we have reached an
outcome that is in the best interests of PaperlinX and its shareholders.”

ARGENTINA TO LIFT BIODIESEL USED TO REPLACE OIL-BASED


PRODUCTS
Argentina is planning to lift the volume of bio-diesel used in place of gas-oil
imports, a report in El Cronista said. It said the government was considering
replacing oil-based products with bio-diesel in particular during winter and
grain harvest periods when fuel was scarce. Argentina’s Energy Secretariat
published a list of 19 companies to supply biodiesel to be blended with diesel
fuel and the volumes assigned to each company. The article quoted Planning
Minister Julio de Vido announcing the move at a biofuels seminar organised
by the Argentine Biofuels Chamber (Carbio), the Argentine Biofuels and
Hydrogen Association (AABH) and the Argentine Surgar Center.

CARBON CREDIT AUCTION FAILS TO ATTRACT BIDS IN BRAZIL


Brazil’s first auction of carbon credits recently finished without any business
being transaction. Forestalweb reported the four participant companies
offered lots of 60,000 tons of carbon credits. This first such auction directed
at the voluntary market in Brazil was carried out via the BM& FBovespa,
created in 2008 with the integration between the Brazilian Mercantile &
Futures Exchange (BM&F) and the São Paulo Stock Exchange (Bovespa),
but finished without any deals being made. The carbon credits were being
auctioned for the price of 10 Braizilian Reals per ton. It’s reported that this

NERVOUS WAIT AS FORESTRY WORKERS FACE AXE


Forestry workers are facing a nervous wait in the Mid North Coast amid
speculation the New South Wales State Government in Australia could axe up
to 70 workers, cutting their jobs and hiring private contractors, The Coffs
Coast Advocate has reported. It said that questions continued to be asked of
Forestry Minister Ian Macdonald, the Greens even going as far to suggest
State Forests could be privatised. The Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew
Fraser said the majority of positions in the firing line are those overseeing the
harvest of timber in State Forests.

GREEN BUILDING RATING TOOL BEING LAUNCHED TO RATE SA


RETAIL CENTRES
The Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) plans to launch a Green
Star SA rating tool for new retail centre developments within the next two
weeks, Engineering News reported. It was expected interested parties would
start registering for certification of proposed shopping centres by the end of
April. "We are already receiving expressions of interest from retail projects
which want to register, and get rated later on in the year, so it’s quite exciting,"
GBCSA CEO Nicola Douglas said in the report.

FORESTRY ALARM IN FIJI OVER TERMITE SPREAD


The forestry industry in Fiji is reported to be becoming increasingly alarmed
over the spread of termites in the South Pacific country. The Fiji Times has
reported that it appeared the termite infestation had affected a much higher
number of homes than initial figures revealed. Advisory councillor for
Tavakubu in Lautoka, Jagendra Singh said about 90 homes in the area were
infested. This was in comparison to earlier reports by the biosecurity authority
that 74 homes in Lautoka had been confirmed to be infested. The continued
spread of the termite had become a major concern for the Forestry
Department, the report said, with suggestions the termites may be a foreign
species heightening concerns.

SURVEY: CATTLE GRAZIERS’ CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTABILITY


Australia’s CSIRO research agency has started a telephone survey of the
challenges and opportunities for northern Australian cattle graziers as a result
of climate change. “We will be asking how graziers in the Northern Territory
and Queensland are currently coping with climate variability and their plans
for the future,” said CSIRO Climate Adaptation Flagship researcher, Dr
Nadine Marshall. “We aim to learn more about their circumstances, strengths
and weaknesses and then observe how they deal with climate change
impacts over time. “Ultimately, we want to establish what makes for
successful adaptation and assist industry and government to develop effective
plans for maximising the capacity cattle graziers have to adapt to
environmental changes.”

HUHU TO THE RESCUE AS IDEA GETS BIOLOGY STUDENT NOTICED


The Huhu grubs thriving in New Zealand natural forests have helped a biology
student at the University of Waikato place third in the recent National NZBio
Student Scientific Poster Competition. Thomas Williams, who was one of 38
participants, presented research that aims to identify microorganisms which
are capable of degrading wood so that bioethanol can be produced
sustainably from woody waste materials. Currently, this process involves
using harsh chemicals and high temperatures, so an efficient biological
method is highly sought after, says Williams, who is studying towards a
Master of Science degree. Huhu grubs eat and metabolise wood and it is
presumed that this is achieved through symbiotic microorganisms living in the
huhu grub’s gut. This research involved feeding groups of huhu grubs diets
containing either wood, cellulose, or starch and comparing the microbial gut
communities of the huhu grubs fed on each diet. Williams hopes his findings
will determine which group of huhu grubs are responsible for breaking down
wood.
