Join us in the fight to save the native forest industry
The decision to end native timber harvesting in Victoria's forests six years ahead of schedule has had consequences far-reaching and have inflicted untold damage on our native timber industry.
However, the sudden termination of native timber harvesting has placed an immense burden on those dedicated to this industry. The six-month adjustment period is woefully inadequate for individuals, businesses, and communities to plan for their futures. Small contracting businesses, the backbone of this industry, are now grappling with consequences beyond their control.
- Reconsider the decision and take a path of renewal.
- Provide genuine and fair compensation.
- Support packages that consider the long-term investments made by businesses.
- Ensure a responsible and considerate approach to this situation.
