ABP is committed to excellence in growing, harvesting and marketing sustainable plantation resources.
ABP strives for continuous improvement in our plantation management ‒ researching, developing and implementing innovative practices which result in the production of consistently high quality wood chips.
An extensive planning process precedes harvest. The application of advanced harvest methods and the engagement of experienced local contractors are integral to this critical stage of ABP operations.
ABP premium woodchips, destined for export to customers in China and Japan, are transported in customised woodchip trailers for loading at our upgraded port facilities in Western Australia and Victoria.
Informed land selection and acquisition, whether leasehold or freehold, is foundational to the long term sustainability of our operations. This process is underpinned by the combined expertise of our estate managers and research and development team.
ABP marketing specialists play a critical role in developing and maintaining relationships with our overseas buyers. For effective engagement with our customers we have staff based in Melbourne and Qingdao, China.
ABP forestry assets are located in the Albany region of Western Australia and the Green Triangle region of South Australia and Victoria.
Our estate in the prime forestry region known as the Green Triangle extends over 44,000ha in Victoria and over 10,000ha in South Australia. ABP also operates a newly-expanded port facility in Portland, Victoria for export of our premium product to international customers, with our head office located in Melbourne.
During the winter of 2021, students from Casterton Secondary College participated in ABP’s native species revegetation program.
