About the Branch

The Gippsland Agroforestry Network was formed in 1992 as the first Agroforestry Network and is now a regional Branch of Australian Forest Growers.  There are currently 11 networks across Victoria and more interstate.

The Network is non-profit, and interested in developing a profitable and sustainable timber industry in Gippsland, based on the production of wood from farm plantations and private native forests.  It brings together farmers, professional foresters, landcarers, nursery owners, contractors, sawmillers, advisors and those who just have an interest.

The Network holds regular meetings, field days and farm walks where a variety of topics are addressed. The Network also has various items of establishment and pruning equipment which are loaned free to members.
