Commercial Timber Production from Public Forests
VicForests is the Victorian government business with responsibility for the sustainable harvest and commercial sale of Victoria's timber in all Victorian State forests. This provides consistency in commercial forestry operations, and clearly separates the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources' (DEDJTR) forestry governance and regulatory roles from any commercial operations.
Persons interested in commercial timber harvesting should contact VicForests.
