About the brochure

The Forest Conservation Fund (FCF) is an Australian Government initiative, developed as part of the 2005 Tasmanian Community Forest Agreement.

The FCF provides a unique opportunity for Tasmanian landowners to be recognised for protecting old growth and under-reserved forest communities on private land. It aims to protect up to 45,600 hectares of private forested land, targeting old growth and under-reserved forest communities. The target includes protection of a minimum of 25,000 hectares of old growth forest.
