The Timber Market Survey (TMS) provides information on timber price movements in Australia. The TMS report is published quarterly and contains national price indexes for a range of timber products. TMS price data is collected through quarterly surveys of a representative sample of timber market participants in eastern Australia. All TMS reports contain price trend results for softwood timber, panels and engineered wood products. In addition, the June and December quarter reports contain pricing information for a range of hardwood products.
The TMS is prepared by Indufor Asia Pacific (Australia) Pty Ltd. Funding is provided by Forestry Corporation NSW; VicForests; HVP Plantations; Queensland Government Department of Agriculture and Fisheries; HQPlantations; OneFortyOne Plantations; Green Triangle Forest Products; AKD Softwoods; and Sustainable Timber Tasmania.
