Please write to your local MP and ask them to watch this video and oppose the burning of native forests for electricity.
The Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is drafting guidelines that will determine if leaving smaller and 'defective' trees in the forest for wildlife is a ‘higher use’ than burning them for electricity.
We know these trees are best left standing, but under the current rules habitat or ecosystem services are not considered a ‘higher use’.
We can’t let this slip under the radar. We need MPs to understand the awful consequences for our beautiful native forests.
