Our precious South West forests are under threat from logging, disease and climate change. We need to act urgently to protect them. 600 year old trees are still being cut down for woodchips. Most Western Australians don’t support logging in our native forests.
Only the Greens are standing up for our forests, with a plan to create secure jobs in the South West.
The Greens Will:
- Continue to work for the full protection of native forests in secure conservation reserves
- Call for an additional $10m in WA Tourism funding to support nature-based tourism in the South West
- Advocate for a $5m package to develop a South West sustainable prefabricated housing industry using plantation timber.
- Creation of jobs through the expansion of the timber plantation industry and building affordable sustainable homes from plantation timber.
