Description

Welcome to our winter WHAT’S OUT THERE, a timber packed soiree to raise funds for our second book - FMR Imbil. This book follows our Jungle Love Festival Build in 2017, where, forming a partnership with the Private Forestry Service of Queensland we discovered a whole load of stuff about timber supply in QLD that you all should know!


Please join us on June 21 for a total timberfest featuring -

  • A PANEL DISCUSSION (6.30pm)

    • With architect and timber bro Jim Gall, native forest expert Sean Ryan from PFSQ and cabinet maker-craftsmen Talty Sargent. These legends will discuss their approach to practice, as well as what’s involved in using local timbers in building, craft and design.

  • JUNGLE LOVE FILM LAUNCH & PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITION

    • Premiere screening of Jack Birtles' film Jungle Love documenting all the action plus an exhibition of Markos Hughes' photographs taken along the way.

  • LIVE JAMS, BOOZE AND AN AMAZING LOCATION.

MORE INFO ABOUT THE BOOK.


80% of Australians prefer wood in their homes and built environments however 60% of Australians are agains't cutting native timbers. Why? Can't native timber forestry be sustainable?


In SE QLD legislation has for a long time pushed the timber industry away from the use of sustainably harvested native hardwood towards the use of introduced plantation species. Introduced species, while fast growing, do not support our native flora and fauna and displace our natural ecosystems. Native hardwood forests however can supply the required volume of timber production when combined with good silvicultural management strategies.


The book, FMR Imbil aims to shed light on this important issue, while sharing stories about the people we met along the way. Spreading the message about forestry in QLD is an important step in ensuring a more sustainable built environment, a more stable ecology and a more circular economy.
