If the new 10-year Forest Management Plan is implemented an area of forest equivalent in size to 10,000 Subiaco football ovals could be logged every year for 10 years!
Over 80% of the wood from our forests ends up as firewood, charcoal, woodchips and railway sleepers.
Our forests are worth more as habitat for wildlife, carbon stores and community heritage.
600-year-old karri giants are sold to overseas wood-chipping companies for $35 a tonne.
Jarrah trees 400 years old and older are being sold as firewood for just $9 a tonne.
There are alternatives. Let’s create a bright future for people and the environment. Please Act Now.
