Introduction Collaborative forest management (CFM), community forest management, or community forestry as it is also referred to, is being promoted by some forestry and social science academics as the way forward in solving conflict over public forest management in Australia. In particular, the University of Melbourne, whose Institute of Land and Food Resources was engaged by the Victorian Government to facilitate the country's first CFM trial in the Wombat State Forest, is publicly supportive of it (IFA 2003), as is the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University which hosts a website that promotes it (RMIT 2004). The Victorian Government has signalled an intention to introduce community forest management more widely, subject to the results of the Wombat State Forest trial (Victorian Government 2002).
