VicForests has today released the amended Timber Release Plan (TRP) following the completion of its consultation period.
The gazetted plans provide industry with certainty, and helps communities to understand where timber harvesting may take place. The amendment to the TRP includes an additional 59 new coupes in the Benalla-Mansfield, North-East and Tambo Forest Management Areas.
In accordance with the requirements of the Sustainable Forests (Timber) Act 2004, VicForests’ Board approved the change to the Timber Release Plan and the notice of that change was published in the Victoria Government Gazette S373 on 27 July 2020.
VicForests harvests under strict regulation, controlled by the Government’s Code of Practice and Management Standards and Procedures.
