After the Cooroy timber mill closed over 10 years ago, several workers liaised with the Lower Mill Board and Noosa Council to form a not for profit timber venture focusing on working with camphor laurel, and staffed by local volunteers. The proposal was welcomed by all parties and the local community, and Council were pleased that the initiative would be assisting in the removal of a noxious weed, namely camphor laurel, from the Shire. Trees were felled, milled, dried and then the volunteer woodworkers made an extensive array of value added items for sale, including chopping boards, tables, kitchen utensils and other basic furniture.
