NSW Native Forests being turned into woodchips


On the south coast of NSW, native forests are still being logged. The logs are taken to the Eden Chip Mill and largely turned into wood chips. These chips are then exported to Asia to be pulped into paper or cardboard or other low value products. The Black Summer bushfires having devastated the native forests of the South Coast and killed many of the animals that live in these forests. The remaining forests are too precious and important to log, particularly to mulch into woodchips. The Nature Conservation Council is campaigning for an end to native forest logging in NSW. Only 9% of timber comes for native forests, with 91% supplied from plantations.
