OPINION: Let’s talk honestly about logging

DEAR News Of The Area,

GOOD to see Patrick Walters in NOTA (1/9/23) took the time to actually read the regulations which Forestry Corp is required to follow when signing off and supervising logging operations in NSW.

However, he then conveniently makes two huge assumptions before having a go at the integrity of anti-logging protestors.

Firstly, that the regulations are adequate and appropriate to protect the long term environmental integrity of our native forest biodiversity, and secondly that they are being complied with.

If you really want an open, honest and adult discussion on logging in our native forests Patrick then you probably need to deal with those two issues first.
