Native forest logging has been halted today in Tasmania’s Central Highlands after forest defenders occupied the logging area. A treesitter has this afternoon avoided arrest after Tasmania Police, Sustainable Timber Tasmania and loggers left the area.
“The native forests we protested in today are mixed native forests with old hollow-bearing eucalypts. These trees are important for wildlife habitat and critical in this climate emergency. Logging needs to end now," said Bob Brown Foundation Campaign Manager, Jenny Weber.
"Today is a small victory for Tasmania's unique native forests," said Ms Weber
