Environment and Community in Forestry
As Victoria is predicted to become hotter and drier, changes to tree productivity and the occurrence of fire, frosts or pests/diseases may produce negative, and in some cases, positive impacts to forests.
Forests play a unique role in a changing climate. Their long production cycles, tolerance to a variety of climates and ability to reduce greenhouse gases mean that climate change holds unique risks and opportunities for Victorian forest growers.
