Proportion of timber harvest area successfully regenerated by forest type
Between 2011–17, 2,059 hectares more have been harvested than regenerated. This does not indicate that sustainable harvest has not been achieved, according to DEDJTR. The figures show the area harvested in a specified five-year period, and the area regenerated in the same five-year period. This needs to be carefully monitored to ensure successful post-harvest timber harvest is fully achieved. A VAGO 2013 audit report found that the harvest manager, VicForests, was meeting the required regeneration standards, but recommended better alignment of harvesting and regeneration reports.
