All forest management plans were developed in the 1990s and early 2000s. Experts from forestry, botany, wildlife biology, catchment management, water resources, cultural heritage and recreation planning contributed to all management plans. Consultation with the public was also required. Forest management zones within all plans are updated as more accurate and current data becomes available.

Information on the uses and values of the forest informs the planning process. Forest uses and values include natural, cultural, social, resources and economic. Management plans are also based on biological, social and cultural data. Data is sourced in Comprehensive Regional Assessments (CRA) and Statements of Resources, Uses and Values.

Victoria's forest management plans include:

Forest management zone maps are updated quarterly: Victoria's Forest Management Areas.
