About the report
Development of incentives for the appropriate management of woodlands is important both for conservation and maintaining agricultural production. This report reviews existing incentives and barriers from the perspective of stakeholders, including private and public land managers.
The project investigated grassy White Box woodlands across New South Wales and northern Victoria. Only one fifth of the grassy White Box woodland sites in the project area were considered by owners/managers to be in 'very good' or 'good' condition. Over two thirds of the sites are currently being grazed by stock without any conservation management.
