The Federal Government has approved the tea tree industry’s request to establish two new levies by matching funds with $720,000 over the next four years.

From the July 1, growers will pay 25 cents per kilogram of tea tree oil produced, for a compulsory research and development levy.

Australian Tea Tree Industry Association chief executive Tony Larkman said he was delighted the Federal Government had approved the levy requests.

“The tea tree industry tried to get a levy up and running in 1995. It was voted down,” he said
