Community forestry operations aim to provide local businesses with access to local forest resources, supporting regional economies. These businesses produce such products as sawlog, posts and firewood.
Our high quality resource is used for furniture, lining boards, bench tops and musical instruments. Currently, Community forestry operations are mostly conducted in western Victoria, with products generated through small scale, low intensity timber harvesting operations.
Timber Utilisation Plan (TUP)
VicForests periodically prepares a Timber Utilisation Plan, identifying areas where we propose to conduct timber harvesting operations on areas not covered by the Allocation Order.
