Time for Transparency and Change in Forestry

Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens’ Leader

Senator Janet Rice | Australian Greens’ Forests spokesperson

A damning analysis of the Regional Forest Agreement in today’s The Guardian newspaper is an indictment on both State and Federal Governments.

Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens' Leader and Forests spokesperson

Forestry Tasmania’s Annual Report shows the subsidies to native forest logging continue.

Minister Barnett’s claim he has the forestry GBE back on a sustainable footing is rubbish.
