Review of the Draft Code of Practice for Private Native Forestry in NSW
This study reports on the economic and silvicultural implications of a NSW Code by applying the EUCAMIX native forest growth simulation model to eucalypt forests in the Upper North East region of NSW. Only the basal area reduction and large tree retention prescriptions were examined, though the Code also impacts on harvesting and silvicultural activities through stream buffer and listed ecological species prescriptions.
This report outlines the impacts of the Code, and the scope for addressing some of its inherent problems while ensuring improved outcomes for forest management and conservation values.
