DPI, with Department of Sustainability and Environment, Vicforests and Parks Victoria, is responsible for Victoria’s forests. We work with commercial industries to maximise timber’s economic value in a socially and environmentally sustainable manner.
We also work with landholders to facilitate forestry into rural properties and communities in a sustainable and productive way, so that forestry can continue to provide benefits for Victorians.
