No logging in the NSW Murray Valley national park

Nationals MPs are pushing to allow logging of huge river red gum forests in NSW.

The bill would revert NSW’s Murray Valley national park to a state park and allow these ancient and oldest remaining Red Gums to be chopped down.

Some of the largest river red gum forests in New South Wales would be opened up for logging if a private members bill from the Nationals’ MP for Murray, Austin Evans, wins support.

In what would be a first for New South Wales, Evans is pushing to reverse the national park listing for the 41,0000 hectare Murray Valley national park, which includes the largest contiguous forest of river red gums and several endangered species.
