It should be blantanly obvious that retaining the very small area of forest of any type, is a priority. This couple with extensive replanting across Australia is urgently required.

Our forests are the lifeblood of our planet and it helps to lessen the impact of climate change. We need also to protect the endangered native animals that inhabit these forests and to have these forests for our children to explore and learn about our habitat for the future generations.

We live on a dry continent, and we need forests covering our hills to attract the rainfall. No live trees should be logged especialy wood that is only good for wood chips as it is found in Tallarook forest.

Tallarook Forest is needed first of all for the rain in the area and also for stabilizing the high erosion soil on which the forest is located.

Then there is the habitat that after fires found refuge in this small pocket of forest. After the fires that started at Kilmore we have noticed new kind of birds in the forest including the rare black cockatoo.

Now after the fires of 2019 there are many dry trees in Victoria that can be harvest and proccess for wood chips, there is no need for Vic Forest to harvest any live wood anymore.

Vic Forest can do better for the enviroment by collecting dry wood this reducing fuel for future fire dangers.

As Victoria is plagued by fires often times, how can anyone can contemplate logging live trees in these days of enviroment disasters hitting the land so often?

That logging could be condoned here is unbelievable. This is one of the few habitats left for our special native species that must be preserved for them. Their destruction in the fires has been devastating. Please don't do this here.

We all need to stop this wanton loss of habitat, enough is enough, didn’t the bushfires teach us anything of how vulnerable our natural heritage is.

Native forest logging in the Tallarook Forest is totally unacceptable on financial, environmental and tourism grounds. It has no social mandate.
