Forestry

This Fact Sheet explains the system that regulates forestry on Crown and private lands. It discusses the various forestry agreements that can be made between the state and national governments, logging licences and offences, and opportunities for the public to have their say about forestry. It also explains how forestry relates to other environmental laws, including those protecting threatened species and native animals and plants.

The information will be useful for people concerned about the impact of forestry operations on the environment, users of state forests, and landholders and neighbours of proposed or existing forestry operations.
