The Native Vegetation Report Card demonstrates the significant achievements made in the conservation and rehabilitation of native vegetation under the Native Vegetation Act 2003 (NV Act) in 2010.

Some 1,025,000 hectares of native vegetation were conserved or improved across the state in 2010 (see page 7). In contrast, only 3600 hectares were approved to be legally cleared where environmental values were maintained or improved through mechanisms such as the use of offsets.

The Private Native Forestry Report Card shows that 425 PNF PVPs were approved during 2010. These PVPs encapsulated 68,600 hectares of native forest that can be logged, as long as environmental outcomes are improved or maintained (as outlined in the PNF Code).
