We sustainably harvest, sell and regrow timber from Victoria’s state forests under a mandate from the Victorian Government.
Our planning process is extensive, with a particular focus on conservation values. All work is undertaken by highly skilled foresters.
Each tree we harvest is replanted and regrown with the original species. We apply extensive protections for protected species, as well as protecting waterways and soils.
Visit our Planning process section to learn more about our thorough multi-layered planning process.
Whenever we harvest timber, we do so in accordance with relevant policies, procedures, strategies, agreements and legislation.
Our operations are independently audited on a regular basis.
We have been certified under the Responsible Wood Certification Scheme since 2007.
Our sustainable practices are underpinned by an adaptive suite of harvesting and regeneration techniques used to balance social, environmental and economic objectives within the forest estate.
We focus on applying the most appropriate silvicultural systems to match the forest species and characteristics to management objectives.
This is achieved by assessing coupes for forest values (forest type, threatened species, social factors) and developing plans tailored for each coupe.
