Managing Tasmania's private forests to the world's highest standards
Forests impact on water quality and yield. Healthy forests distribute water runoff and improve water quality. In Tasmania, the Forest Practices Code gives considerable attention to the maintenance of water quality and stream flow.
Research by the Co-operative Research Centre for Catchment Hydrology at Monash University, Australia's leading research centre on water catchments, reveals it is difficult to detect changes in the yield of a water catchment if less than 20 per cent is disturbed in any one year.
