END NATIVE FOREST LOGGING

Our native forests are our best defence against the climate crisis. They sink carbon emissions, they’re home to the growing list of threatened and endangered species and they keep our soil and waterways healthy. Our native forests are too precious to destroy and yet the NSW Government is still intent on carrying on with this disastrous industry.

We’re calling for an immediate commitment to end native forest logging in NSW. Other states have already made these plans and while the NSW Government carries on subsidising the costly native forest logging industry with taxpayer dollars, trees that are hundreds of years old continue to be cut down.

The logging industry is a dirty industry, with thousands of dollars in fines paid for breaches of environmental protection laws paid each year. And nothing will bring the trees back.

We need to end native forest logging in NSW and use our forests in far better ways like sustainably managed recreation and tourism. Many State Forests slated for logging are also home to Sacred Aboriginal Sites, that on their own should be enough to prevent any destruction to the forest.

We need to end native forest logging now. For our threatened and endangered species, for our communities and for the climate.

We’re calling for:

An immediate commitment to end native forest logging
Now more than ever we need a commitment from the NSW Government to an end date for native forest logging. This is urgent. Every day that is wasted is more of our precious forests felled that we can’t get back.

A plan to fairly transition the industry to softwood plantation
The native forest logging industry in NSW is already dwindling and people and communities are losing out as this happens with no plan to transition workers and facilities to soft-wood plantation. With a plan to ensure all workers are able to continue meaningful employment in the industry and processing facilities transitioned to processing soft-wood, so people and communities can thrive alongside our native forests.

A moratorium on commencement of all new native forest logging operations
While we develop a plan for industry transition, we need to protect all forests slated for logging for which logging has not yet commenced. This means we need to put a freeze on all new logging, keeping our native habitats intact and protecting our threatened and endangered species.
