Prior to entering parliament, Booth ran his own sawmilling business, Timber World, with his partner, Kerin. Together, they have three children: Bronte, Kalinka and Jirri.
Booth was elected to Meander Valley Council in 1993 and served one term as deputy mayor.
In the 2002 election, Booth was elected to state parliament with a vote of 11.5%. Booth was re-elected in the 2006 Tasmanian state election on a primary vote of 9.3%. This decrease is attributable to a statewide drop in the Green vote, and votes earned by Labor's Michelle O'Byrne and independent anti-pulp-mill campaigner Les Rochester. He was re-elected again at the 2010 state election.
After the 2010 Tasmanian state election, Booth refused to support the Greens-Labor deal, warning that the deal with Labor would hurt the Greens. He held the Greens portfolios of Forests; Energy; Attorney-General and Justice; Small Business; Industry; Racing and Gaming; and Veterans Affairs.
