Remember to print on recycled paper
The Central Highlands of Victoria have been logged for more than 150 years, with the majority of timber extracted going into making paper or cardboard boxes. As a result of past overcutting and recurrent wildfires, there is now very little forest that if logged will produce sawn timber. Only poor-quality trees that will be chipped for paper making are left. The bottom line is that Victoria will be financially better off without logging in Mountain Ash and Alpine Ash forests; some estimates suggest that the state would be ahead by between $110 million and $190 million annually if logging stopped today. This problem needs to be recognised.
