Tasmania Policy Priorities

Every two years AFG holds a Policy Forum where policies are comprehensively reviewed and updated by our members.

AFG’s Tasmanian delegates have identified the following priorities for consideration by policy makers in your state:

  • Dealing with Public Perceptions of Plantation and Native Forests
  • Governance of Forest Practices
  • Promoting Forestry Education and Training
  • Control of Native and Introduced Browsing Animals
  • Land Use Planning 

AFG will continue to advocate for sensible, sustainable and equitable policies that will allow the forest industry to compete and prosper in a complementary manner in the rural landscape. Today there are more reasons than ever to support effective integration of trees into the landscape and the sustainable management of private native forests is increasingly important. Removal of unnecessary legislative and policy impediments is a key component of this process.
