ActivAcre turns less productive farmland into a reliable source of income.
Organise a visit or meeting → maximise income from your land.
ActivAcre is a local initiative - a flexible way to create new, steady income, improve existing farm business and enhance environmental outcomes.
Long-term private carbon forestry projects.
Style 1 Set and Forget
Style 2 Farm Flexibility
This is future-focused land management – a way to reawaken dormant assets; to re-energise under-used paddocks and hillsides.
By diversifying traditional farming approaches, ActivAcre spreads risk.
It secures additional, annual payments but doesn’t replace core farming activity with forestry.
The income it generates gives farmers certainty in uncertain times by utilising low-value land that’s difficult to cultivate for crops or grazing.
Working effectively for all involved.

Creates a new plantation asset in Tasmania
Tasmania has been selected for the initial rollout of the ActivAcre program. A mixture of land classes, suitable rainfall and distance to existing markets makes it the perfect environment for tree plantations. If you are outside of the designated area (shown in orange) but would like to participate in the program, please contact SFM to discuss the options. The minimum plantation land requirement is 20 hectares.
Our team has a proven track record in delivering for Tasmania's future.
