Forestry & Wetlands
If Australia does not adopt best forestry practices our children will thank us for nothing.

Gunns of Tasmania (Greedybushwacker gunni)
If you saw the Four Corners programme on Gunns of Tasmania called
"Lords of the Forest",
you would have noticed that these people are very careless with the truth, however they are making millions
by destroying the virgin forests of Tasmania.
A Destructive Feral Animal Lurks in Tasmania
There is a destructive feral animal destroying the ancient gene pools of Tasmania, its scientific name is Greedybushwacker gunni.
It's hard to believe, but this destruction of Australia is even supported by the Premier of Tasmania Mr Paul Lennon.
If a foreign power did this to Australia we would be on a war footing, so where is our Prime Minister?
And, where is the Leader of the Opposition?
This is what these ferals call 'developing our resources'.
Shouldn't the vandals responsible for this outrage be in prison?
If a foreign power tried to do this to our forests, we would be on a war footing to - protect our country!
So who are the quislings who have sold us out for a quick buck?

BIOGEOGRAPHICAL TROPICAL FOREST REALMS
Maps of where the tropical rainforests of the world can be found.
But you�ll have to hurry because the Asian Logging Giants intend to wipe them out; they see money not the forests or the animals. These people don�t care about nature and they can never have enough money; it is a kind of disease that they have.

Wood Chipping, Clear Felling and Feral Animals
There are some strange people that say that if we don�t chop down our ancient forests soon then they will all die out.
So we should allow in the woodchip companies to clear fell our forests to save them.
That kind of logic would suggest that because we did not have woodchip companies clear felling our forests in the past then our native forests should have become extinct thousands of years ago. Hmmm strange indeed that they were hanging on and waiting for Gunns of Tasmania and Harris Daishowa to chop them all down to save them from dying out.
What they are actually doing is getting as much cut down as soon as possible so as they can then say that �this area is not now worth saving for its genetic library� so they will then own it. If anyone does not want to believe this, then bad luck because this is what is happening.
There are some that say that by destroying our remnant old growth forests, they are only developing our resources. Have such people ever considered the difference between a broadly based and a narrowly based gene pool? Or do they even care?
See Collin�s Pine for good forestry practices in the USA. Perhaps those destructive people at Gunns in Tasmania could take a leaf out of the book of sustainable practices of �Collins in the US�, regarding responsible forestry.
Here is a letter from The Business Journal about the forestry practices of Collins - www.collinswood.com
If feral animals came to Australia and began clear felling and wood chipping what is left of our native forests, what would we do to those feral animals? Every person that i have asked has made a very serious suggestion as to what we would have to do with them.
If Martians came to earth and started to clear fell our forests and poison our rivers and oceans and contaminate our crops with genetically engineered and patented pollen: see pages one and two, we would be on a war footing; and those who sold us out to the Martians would be charged with treason.
Well this is happening to our planet right this minute and Martians are not responsible; those that are responsible live here on planet earth and have the gall to call themselves civilised. We must all be part of the solution and consider our children�s future, because if we are not, then we are part of the problem.
If an "expert" tells you not to be concerned about our dwindling forests and they fail to consider the following: -
Millions of animals lose their homes when we clear-fell their forests.

You�ll notice that questions 61, 62, 63 of feral animals overlap into forestry.
