CRC for Forestry media releases

With 29 partner organisations across Australia, including five universities, the CSIRO, government and industry organisations, the CRC for Forestry assisted the media by putting it in touch with partners who were well placed to provide balanced, science-based comment on current issues in forest science.

The CRC for Forestry  hosted the Old Forests, New Management international scientific conference about the conservation and use of old-growth forests in the 21st century, in February 2008. Media releases from the conference can be downloaded from the conference website.
