Description:
Liberals for Forests is an Australian political minor party. It has contested both state and federal elections in recent years, but has only achieved one elected representative - Janet Woollard (elected as an Independent) in Western Australia. It has no representation at the federal level.

The party was founded in 2001 by Dr Keith Woollard, husband of Janet Woollard and an ex-AMA president.

The Party generally professes itself to be ideologically aligned with the centre-right sympathies of the Liberal Party of Australia, but with a greater regard to environmentalism.

Despite its low profile, the party has gained a respectable proportion of the primary Senate vote in some states. For example, in the 2004 election it received only a few hundred votes less than the Australian Democrats in Victoria.

Name

The registered party name at the Australian Electoral Commission and the Western Australian Electoral Commission was "liberals for forests" (uncapitalised). As of late 2009, liberals for forests is no longer a registered political party anywhere in Australia.
