AFG has a robust mechanism for the development of policy with direct input from our members. This has produced a range of policies that identify important areas for improving the resilience, viability and contribution of the private forestry sector.
AFG Policies are prepared to assist Government, decision makers and AFG branches and members in further developing policy that recognises AFG priorities.
AFG held its 5th Policy Forum in Launceston at the Biennial Conference in October 2016. Prior the the forum, members were provided an opportunity to comment on existing national policies and proposed edits to policies that required an update. The proposed edits were developed by a group of volunteers and specialists. At the Forum, policy recommendations were debated and resolved. The AFG Policy Statements 5th edition will be available shortly and this page will be further updated with current versions of individual policies.
