VicForests recognises the community interest in timber harvesting in Victoria.
Timber harvesting remains a complex and emotive subject which generates passionate opinions. Engaging with the community is vital to improving the public’s understanding of VicForests and how we operate.
Engagement is also crucial to ensuring the community is given the chance to have input into the planning of timber harvesting and other associated operations.
VicForests’ stakeholder engagement activities provide the community with opportunities to have input into planning and operational practices, help improve the public’s understanding of VicForests and how we operate, and to allow us to better understand the important issues for our stakeholders.
VicForests is building a Stakeholder Engagement Framework to provide the community with information regarding our engagement with stakeholders and help ensure everybody understands the many ways in which we engage.
