The Strathbogie community has begun a campaign to convince VicForests (the land manager) and the State Government that industrial logging as conceived by VicForests is incompatible with the sustainable management of the Strathbogie forest. The Strathbogie Sustainable Forestry Group began in late 2013, initially in opposition to the scaled-up logging being proposed by VicForests, but has also lobbied hard to stop the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) conducting extensive and destructive planned burns across large parts of the forest. We are now a broad-based advocacy group, insisting on forest management policy (and operations) that are evidence-based, supported by the local community and result in improved management of the diverse values and services this forest provides.
