Forestry ABCD Framework from Reef Catchments

The Reef Catchments forestry working group has completed the Native and Plantation ABCD Forestry frameworks and is seeking feedback from interested members of the community and industry.

These frameworks provide information on Degrading through to Aspirational practices that apply to both native and plantation forestry. Although the frameworks do not replace industry accepted codes of practice they do identify additional practices that may contribute to increased sustainability and innovation in the forestry industry.

In addition to timber production, the frameworks have been developed for agroforestry (e.g. trees and cattle) and for plantings that have been planted for carbon sequestration.
