Private Native Forestry (PNF) is an important, and in some regions of Australia, an increasing component of timber supply to industry. Recent harvest reductions in public forests have elevated the commercial focus on private forests, leading to heightened concern over environmental impacts and the development of new regulatory instruments. This JVAP report draws on the findings from several concurrent projects to discuss the potential impacts of regulatory mechanisms on timber production, and habitat and biodiversity attributes in a commercial timber production environment.

The report is particularly relevant to policy makers, those with an interest in forest ecology, private native forest owners who utilise their forests for timber production and increasingly, native timber processors.
