* This data represents woodchip production for the September 2000, December 2000 and March 2001 quarters only. Woodchip production data became confidential in the June 2001 quarter. Gunns Ltd purchased North Forest Products Ltd and Boral Ltd. This resulted in an increased concentration of ownership in the woodchip industry and thus production data collected by the Australian Bureau of Statistics became unrealeaseable.
