Overview

The Victorian Government in partnership with Traditional Owners is embarking on a major program to reform our forest management and guide the modernisation of the Victorian Regional Forest Agreements.

Victoria's public forests are valuable in their own right, and are important to the community. The connection that Victoria’s Traditional Owners and Aboriginal communities' have with Country is core to their culture and wellbeing. Forests provide Victorian communities with a broad range of uses and values that include clean water and air, grand old trees, biodiversity conservation, recreation and connection with nature, and jobs and economic opportunities.

We need to manage our forests for the multiple values they provide so future generations can enjoy and use forests as we do today. The community is key to shaping the future management and use of our forests because public forests are for the community.
