View Publication

This project is in breach of the National Forest Policy 1991 and the current provisions of the Forestry Act 1991 (as amended) in that the logging taking place to either side of the road corridor is not regulated through either a proper Forest Management Agreement or a proper Timber Authority. The project cannot be considered to be a forestry project in any proper forest management sense. The project is also in breach of the Act in that logging appears to have moved into the East Awin Forest Management Agreement area without due allocation process being observed.
