Defined forest area

The defined forest area is the area of State-owned native forest over which the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries applies its forest management system, and is subject to the requirements of the Australian Standard for Sustainable Forest Management AS 4708-2013.

The defined forest area includes eligible areas of State forest and timber reserves available for the supply of timber and other forest products.

Under the Forestry Act 1959, the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries retains an interest in forest products and quarry material on other state land outside of the defined forest area.
