PREMIER Will Hodgman says an announcement will soon be made about "serious reforms" to Forestry Tasmania, amid speculation the struggling company will be folded into a government department.
The review of the state-owned logging company was due at the end of March, but has only just been handed to the government.
Resources Minister Paul Harriss said the government was considering the review and would make an announcement soon.
Opposition Leader Bryan Green said the uncertainty was unfair to Forestry Tasmania workers.
"I'm really sceptical about what the government are doing in this regard and I think the people working at FT have been treated appallingly through this process," he said.
"They're doing this in secret and are not even prepared to allow the Tasmanian people to understand what they're even thinking about."
Mr Hodgman said the government would soon make its plans clear.
"As quickly as we are able, we will certainly share with the broader Tasmanian community, and especially those in the forestry industry, where we see the future of Forestry Tasmania," he said.
"It's important that as we grow our industry that we get the right structures in place.
"These are serious reforms that previous governments were unable or unwilling to tackle."
Greens leader Kim Booth said Forestry Tasmania's time had passed.
"The government has got to face the reality that the old model of a publicly subsidised native forest woodchipping sector is finished, it's dead and gone," he said.
Both Mr Booth and Mr Green said they would quiz the government about the review when Parliament resumed today.
Animal cruelty laws are also likely to be debated, after the government moved to toughen its own legislation in the wake of an investigation into the greyhound racing industry.
The government will this week table laws to clarify the standing of the state's magistrates after it emerged that they had not been sworn in correctly for 30 years.
