Plantations for Australia: the 2020 Vision

The Vision was launched in 1997 by the Ministerial Council on Forestry, Fisheries and Aquaculture, and revised in 2002.

Plantations for Australia: the 2020 Vision is a strategic partnership between the Australian, state and territory governments and the plantation timber growing and processing industries.

Its overarching principle is to enhance regional wealth creation and international competitiveness through a sustainable increase in Australia's plantations, based on a notional target of trebling the area of commercial tree crops to around 3 million hectares by 2020.

The Vision has 16 actions broadly grouped under five Strategic Elements:

  1. The Policy Framework
  2. The Regulatory Framework
  3. Investment Growth
  4. Social and Environmental Factors
  5. Monitoring and Review
