wood4good is a new, private company founded by experienced local tree-farmers; Ben Boxshall, Howard Perry and Malcolm Brown. Ben is also President of Farm Forest Growers Victoria.
We’re each members of the Northern United Forestry Group (NUFG) and passionate about the role of trees in combining environmental protection with the development of sustainable industries.
We aim to build strong and positive recognition of our brand, and a diversified and vertically integrated enterprise that services growing demand for renewable, plantation-derived forest products and associated environmental services in regional Victoria.
In addition to supplying plantation-grown firewood, we offer a comprehensive management service to existing and prospective tree growers, including the design, establishment and ongoing management of new plantations.
Over the next 3 years, wood4good aims to diversify into biochar production for emerging markets associated with food production and filtering technologies, and become a leading supplier of other plantation-derived biomass products, such as feedstock for the production of bioenergy and biofuels.
