Easter and cooler days.

Worked on follow up on our 2017 regeneration site. Mainly weeding along side the emerging variety of rain forest trees. We are getting a lot more thorough in our original slash, pull and mulch with the lantana.

And its rapid break down is impressive.

In-between the tangle of the dried lantana, pencil cedars from the visible parent trees, are sprouting. Native tamarinds, sandpaper figs, white and red cedars, blue figs, a variety of ferns along with the vines which we control.

Lantana front line.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stand up for our forests. We are one step closer to ending industrial logging in public native forests!

After receiving hundreds of letters, shadow minister for agriculture, Joel Fitzgibbon, and shadow minister for environment and water, Tony Burke took a step forward and made the following positive statement:

“Labor takes evidence-based science seriously, as we do the benefits and jobs that a sustainable forestry industry brings. That is why Labor will always support proper, independent and full scientific assessments of RFA outcomes as part of the agreed framework. This includes all relevant science, including climate science and impacts on threatened species.”

We still have a long way to go, but we are heading in the right direction! Labor’s position could have implications for the rollover of nine RFAs due to expire in NSW, WA and Vic over the next three years.
