Abstract

The Brown Mountain case is a landmark decision with significant implications for State forest harvesting practices and ecologically sustainable forest management in Victoria. The decision is analysed here in the context of VicForests' Ecologically Sustainable Forest Management Plan published in December 2015. This article discusses the requirements for a meaningful sustainability plan for harvesting in State forests and highlights continuing problems in achieving best practice sustainable forest management under the current regime.
