For Like minded people who like to see-
The Nature Conservation Council of NSW is busy gaining support for their "campaign to stop senseless destruction of NSW's forests".
After their success in Tasmania recently, with Australia's largest woodchipper Gunns Limited announcing that it would stop logging native forests and harvest plantations, they are lobbying to now stop Nippon Paper and all unsustainable logging of native forests in NSW. What do they call unsustainable? That frightens me!!
They talk about tens of thousands of hectares of native forests being destroyed!!, illegal logging and breaches as well as protected rainforests and old growth being unlawfully reduced to bare stumps!
What garbage!! The average landholder would make $500 out of a load of 20 ton of chip! not a viable option! and the timber they use now for chip is mostly waste.....very sustainable if you ask me!!
Together with PVP ( Property Vegetation Plans) and the Native Veg Act how could anyone slaughter tens of thousands of forests and lay it bare and get away with it!!! Landholders are responsible legally under the PNF ( Private Native Foresty Code) to manage and harvest sustainably! The government owned Forestry have their own code. So many lies are being told to the uneducated city folk to gain support...as usual! They are asking for donations to support their cause!
Logging is the same as pasture management. Do nothing and it produces less!! Encourage regrowth and root depth through proper management, and nature's cycle improves!
We have to stop the closure of our Australian hardwood forests to preserve incomes, and forests!!!!
