Safeguarding biodiversity and cultural heritage

ForestrySA is committed to the protection, management and enhancement of native forest under its management, for the benefit of South Australia.

We manage more than 16,000ha of native forest across South Australia’s Mount Lofty Ranges and Limestone Coast regions, for conservation.

These areas contain a variety of vegetation types including native forest, woodland, grassy woodland, shrub land, grassland and wetland.
