Victorian forestry plan

The Victorian Government has developed the Victorian Forestry Plan to assist the industry as it manages its gradual transition away from native logging.

Over the last ten years, the availability of native timber for logging has decreased by around half, due to bushfires and wildlife protections.

At the same time, consumers and retailer demand has grown for plantation timber products.

The Victorian Government has developed the Victorian Forestry Plan to assist the industry as it manages its gradual transition away from native logging.

Under the long-term plan, a $120 million package will help make sure workers, businesses and communities have the certainty and support they need.

By providing a long-term plan, we’re creating a new, more sustainable future for the forestry industry but just as importantly, we’re giving workers the certainty they deserve.
