Bushfires & Forests - Best Practice Land Management

The Victorian Forestry Plan - Lies & Mistruths
Victoria produces some of the finest sustainable, renewable, certified, local hardwood timbers in the world – it’s a fact! The Victorian Andrews Government wants to take away your access, to the public resource that you own, and that provides these exquisite hardwood timber products that you want and desire. They are trying to justify this using outright lies and mistruths, whilst at the same time ignoring fact, science, climate change reality, logic and Victorian consumer desires.
Hardwood Products - Native Forestry Facts
Sustainable, renewable, certified local Victorian hardwood timbers, desired by consumers, come from a very, very small area of Victoria’s vast native forest estate. The active sustainable management of this public native resource is positive: economically (providing a wide range of exquisite hardwood products), socially (supporting rural workers & communities and metropolitan manufacturers), and environmentally (helping tackle climate change).
