Investment and expenditure in forest management
Expenditure for forest fire management was reduced to $269.9 million in 2016–17. Prior to this, it fluctuated, including up to $396.5 million in 2015–16. Reported expenditure on conservation and recreation increased significantly between 2014-15 and 2016-17 to $369.8 million.
