Australia: Redgum eco-review says it’s ok to keep ruining


An environmental impact statement (EIS) on redgum logging in southern New South Wales recommends the practice continue. Green groups are critical of the EIS, which will be assessed by Forests New South Wales – not the state planning department. Activists are in the Millewa Forest near Deniliquin this week seeking to stop harvesting in the Ramsar-listed wetlands. Forests New South Wales western manager Gary Rodda says the EIS was done to remove any uncertainty about forestry operations in the area.

“Clearly the EIS is out for public display so that people can make comments,” he said. ‘We’ll wait to see what those comments [are when they] come in, but at this point in time yes, the EIS is recommending a continuation of harvesting.”
