VicForests will not be harvesting old growth forest.
The old growth indicated in the DELWP spatial layer is based on modelled old growth, not surveyed and identified old growth forests, and is indicative only. VicForests will identify old growth forest through field surveys and protect old growth forest stands from harvesting.
In planning and conducting timber harvesting operations, VicForests will comply with the conservation measures and actions in the Greater Glider Action Statement.
