Managed regrowth forests in Australia: Reassessing their multiple roles and values in a sustainable future

A one-day symposium is being held at the University of Melbourne, 14 July 2011 (optional field trip 15 July) to discuss the important contribution and management of regrowth forests across Australia for a range of values and benefits to society.
This workshop comes 20 years after the Young Eucalypt Report (Kerruish and Rawlins 1991) was launched, which brought into focus many of the commercial timber management options for young regrowth forest.
It will assess the multiple values and benefits of actively managed regrowth forests for commercial wood production, water, carbon, biodiversity and fire management in the landscape.
Peter Walsh, Victorian Minister for Agriculture and Food Security, will also be providing a Government perspective as a keynote speaker. An optional field trip to Toolangi State forest will be held the following day.
RSVP by Friday 8 July
