Trees in the landscape


Program Manager: Professor Brad Potts

This research program focused on developing forestry practices to meet agreed environmental certification requirements and foster constructive community engagement.

Such practices help provide for the forest industr­y's long-term 'licence-to-operate' in the Australian landscape, and build international recognition of sustainable forest practices for product marketing.

Research Program Four comprised these research areas:
