Our native forests continue to be logged, with almost 50% being woodchipped and exported to make toilet paper and cardboard.
Native forests provide critical wildlife habitat for many species and are there for the enjoyment of people through many different activities.
With more than five million hectares of our forest estate hit hard by severe bushfires, we must protect what's left.
Native forests supply only 9% of the timber harvested in NSW, and native forest logging is heavily subsidised by the plantation sector.
The native forest hardwood division of the Forestry Corporation made just $400,000 profit in 2019-20, or just $28 per hectare of timber harvested.
Forestry Corporation’s is forecast to lose $15 million a year are predicted between 2022 to 2024.
This industry is by being propped up by taxpayers.
The NSW Government should use its power to end native forest logging now.
Our native forests are worth more standing.
