Forestry Australia Policies
Forestry Australia will continue to advocate for sensible, sustainable and equitable policies that will allow the forest industry to compete and prosper in a complementary and sustainable manner.
Removal of unnecessary legislative and policy impediments is a key component of this process.
Forestry Australia Policy Statements
The following policy statements are the consensus view of Australian professional foresters on traditional and contemporary forestry matters. They are free of the beliefs and convictions of either political parties or industrial lobby groups. Although all members have had opportunity to contribute to the finalisation of these policies, the statements do not necessarily reflect the view of all members.
These policy statements will be subject to periodic review (normally every 3 years). Comments are welcome at any time and will be retained and considered when undertaking the next review. You are encouraged to use these statements in your private study and public submissions, provided due reference is given as to the source of the information.
Many Forestry Australia members are currently developing further policy statements covering a wide range of forestry issues.
New statements will be added to this website over coming months.
