Karri forest management plan

Karri regrowth forest

The Forest Products Commission has developed the Karri forest management plan to meet the requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council’s® (FSC®) Controlled Wood Standard (FSC-STD-30-010; FSC-C120630) and the associated FSC Australia’s High Conservation Values (HCVs) evaluation framework. The Commission sources timber from pure and mixed karri forest, which is available for harvesting under the Forest Management Plan 2014-2023.

The Commission undertakes stakeholder consultation on the identification of high conservation values (HCVs) within the defined forest management unit (FMU) and the precautionary measures in place to protect them. At each revision of the Plan stakeholder feedback has been considered. More recently the May 2015 version of the plan was revised and updated as part of a periodic review. The June 2016 version of the plan is now available to download:

A summary of the changes that have been made since the May 2015 version of the plan are available to view here:

Our procedures

We have developed a procedure for ensuring no Type 2 old-growth karri forest is harvested. This procedure was last updated in June 2016 to include further explanation on how the Commission has identified and protected Type 2 old-growth in accordance with FSC Australia’s definition of Type 2 old-growth forest. This procedure is available here:
