Sustainable forest management

Sustainable forest management is about finding the balance - protecting our forests for future generations, while also providing many other benefits including the timber and timber products we use every day.

For our forests to be truly sustainable they have to support all our communities’ environmental, social and economic needs and values now and into the future.

Forest managers are well trained to understand how to maximise the timber we can get from harvesting operations and use science to ensure forest features are protected and the trees will grow back ensuring the forest remains healthy and productive for years to come.
