We are forest people
Taking care of Victorian native forests is our life. Timber is natural, durable, renewable and stores carbon for life.
For today and tomorrow
Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at VicForests. We ensure that any forest we harvest is regenerated for the future enjoyment of generations to come.
A living healthy forest
Active forest management delivers environmental, social and economic benefits.
Established in 2004, we’re a body under the State Owned Enterprises Act managing the harvest, sale and regrowing of sustainable timber from Victorian State forests on behalf of the Victorian government.
Every tree we harvest is replanted with seed collected from the harvesting area. The regrown area is closely monitored to ensure future enjoyment of the forest.
Not a single tree is harvested without extensive pre-planning. We consult with scientists, stakeholders and government to ensure we harvest and regrow with care.
