The Victorian Association of Forest Industries Inc. (VAFI) is devastated by the State Government’s decision to shut down the Victorian native timber industry by 2030.

“It’s clear the government has bowed to pressure from vocal environmental groups and turned its back on listening to those within the industry and those impacted by the flow-on of this devastating decision. Victoria has a long and proud native timber history and it is integral to many rural and regional communities that depend on it,” VAFI CEO, Tim Johnston said.
