Socio-economic impacts of land use change in the Green Triangle and Central Victoria: Final summary of findings of the Land Use Change project

Socio-economic impacts of land use change in the Green Triangle and Central Victoria: Final summary of findings of the Land Use Change project

This study aims to understand the social and economic impacts of the changes to land use in the region over recent time. Between 1991 and 2006 changes included: expansion of bluegum plantations; expansion of cropping; growth in the number of rural residential properties; changes to dairy farming, which declined in some areas and grew in others; growth in beef grazing; decline in grazing sheep for wool and growth in prime lambs; and growth in viticulture.

While the area of pine plantations did not change significantly over this period, some data were analysed about pine plantations to provide a better understanding of forestry in the region.
