This monitoring report describes the first monitoring data that was collected after ecological thinning treatments were implemented in river red gum forests in the Millewa precinct of Murray Valley National Park.

The post-thinning data is compared with the pre-thinning baseline data collected prior to ecological thinning. The analyses in this report seek to explore the immediate effects of thinning on a range of variables in comparison with 2015 data.
