About the Management Plan
This Tree Fern Management Plan outlines a system to facilitate and regulate the sustainable harvesting of Dicksonia antarctica tree ferns in Tasmania. Conditions of this plan are consistent with the long term conservation of Dicksonia antarctica in its natural habitat.
This Management Plan has been prepared by the Tasmanian Government in consultation with the Australian Government to meet the requirements of the Tasmanian Forest Practices Act 1985 and Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. It supersedes the Tree Fern Management Plan that was approved by the Australian Government in 2012.
