Bracks one tree

Despite a promise to protect old growth forests that link the Errinundra and Snowy parks, logging crews were clearfelling 30ha of giant trees in a protected area that Premier Bracks had promised would get “immediate protection”.

Environment Minister John Thwaites was not willing to comment on the issue at first but later said that any newly protected areas that were being logged at the time of the election would finish being logged.
