The report includes the following:

  • Native Vegetation report card 2014–16, which provides information on the conservation, restoration, management and approvals and notifications for clearing native vegetation.
  • Private Native Forestry report card 2014–16, which provides information on the number and area of Private Native Forestry (PNF) Property Vegetation Plans (PVPs).
  • Woody Vegetation Change report card 2013–15, which provides a summary of losses in woody vegetation extent as a result of agriculture, infrastructure, forestry and fire. The period covered is earlier than in other sections of this report owing to the extended length of time required to analyse the satellite data.
  • Compliance and Enforcement report card 2014–16, which reports on compliance and enforcement activities under the Native Vegetation Act 2003 (NV Act).

The report is being released with accompanying data (XLS 394KB). This is provided in spreadsheet form and displays the comprehensive data used to develop the report. This includes historical Landsat data from 1998 to 2011 and more recent SPOT 5 data from 2009 to 2015.
