    In 1986, in what was then the Warragul Region of the Department of Conservation, Forest and Lands, a review of timber harvesting prescriptions was initiated by Don Thomson (Assistant Regional Manager, Public Land) and Ken Ashton (Assistant Regional Manager, Resource Conservation). The review therefore had input from people with experience in catchment management and flora and fauna management, as well as forest management.
