Sustainability

Commercial timber production in Victorian native forests is highly regulated, well managed and restricted to just 0.1% of state forests. Sustainable forestry and good management is essential for the health of the industry.

VAFI works to ensure security of supply for members in terms of land management and resource regulations, for the benefit of the economy and community in a sustainable way.

VAFI has a commitment to the sustainability and biodiversity of Victorian forests.

Importantly, wood is also the more environmentally sustainable natural resource. Timber products are renewable, store carbon and use less energy to produce than other materials.
