We harvest, sell and regrow sustainable timber from Victoria’s native forests. Find out more
Celebrating forestry research on Australia's national stage
A message from our CEO, Monique Dawson
At VicForests, each year we look forward to The Institute of Foresters of Australia and Australian Forest Growers’ – now Forestry Australia’s – National Conference.
It provides an opportunity for forestry organisations all across Australia to contribute to the industry’s shared vision, with one of the key themes of this conference being active and adaptive forest management.
For us, this has meant the culmination of two significant pieces of research by our forest and spatial data scientists which were showcased during the conference.
Our spatial data scientist Dr. Jiang’s research on the critical role forest connectivity plays in preserving Leadbeater’s Possum populations in our State Forests and our forest scientist Michael Ryan’s research demonstrating VicForests’ harvesting and regeneration practices are protecting Victoria’s wildlife as species are now commonly found immediately within or around completed harvest areas are important contributions to environmental conservation.
Like everyone, we care about protecting our precious flora and wildlife in our native forests and take our responsibility of sustainably harvesting coupes within our State Forests for today and future generations seriously.
A point of pride for us is surveying the forest post-harvest and witnessing endangered species living in the landscape due to careful management.
At VicForests, we rely on the best science available to ensure we are using world class forest management practices.

If you have wind thrown timber following the storm event that may be able to be processed by our timber processors please contact VFS Admin on firstname.lastname@example.org
If the timber is more than 3 metres in length and 40cm in diameter, please contact us detailing how much timber is on your property, your location and the dimensions. We can then get in touch to assess the timber and give you advice on how that timber can be used.
We are working as fast as we can to get to everyone who contacted us for advice. Our experts will get back to you as soon as they can.
