An approach to land cover change and biodiversity

Our native forests are important for timber production, water catchments, recreation and other uses. 

They are also critical to the biodiversity of the South West. After nearly 200 years of harvesting the regrowth forest of today is very different to the original forest. Find out how modern forest management can allow us to sustainably meet our timber needs whilst ensuring that forests can still support biodiversity and many other values. Engage in field techniques employed by forest managers to determine sustainable timber harvests and treatment of stands to maximise production while maintaining or enhancing biodiversity.
