No green tick for destroying WA's ancient forests
Recently WA’s Forest Products Commission was given a green tick for woodchips produced by clear felling Karri forest in WA’s southwest.
Carbon dating by the WA Forest Alliance has revealed that trees over 300 years old are being woodchipped. Critical habitat for endangered cockatoos, ringtail possums and other wildlife is being destroyed every day by these logging operations.
There is nothing sustainable or responsible about clear felling these forests and sending them to the chip mill.
The certification provided for these activities is now under investigation by third party auditors following a complaint by the WA Forest Alliance.
Don’t let them trick consumers into thinking that they are buying sustainable products from WA forests. Tell the Forest Stewardship Council to remove their green tick from WA's unsustainable logging operations.
