Forest Management Plan

The new Forest Management Plan 2024-2033, prepared by the Conservation and Parks Commission (through the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions - DBCA) has been approved and will be implemented from 1 January 2024.  

The Forest Management Plan (prepared in accordance with the Conservation and Land Management Act 1984) is the overarching framework to protect and manage more than 2.5 million hectares of forests on public lands in our state’s south-west. 

A key objective of the plan is to ensure forest health and resilience in face of the region’s drying and warming climate, conserving the biodiversity, Aboriginal cultural heritage values and water catchments of the south-west forests, while providing for recreation, tourism and other forest uses. 

This landmark plan has been developed after extensive consultation, assessment and analysis, to support the State Government’s commitment to protect our environment and native forests.
