We acknowledge the peoples of the Yuin and Wiradjuri Nations and the Ngarigo, Walgalu, Dharawal, Gundungurra and Ngunnawal tribal people, who are the Traditional Owners of the Country that is the subject of this proposal. We pay respect to the Elders past and present of these Nations and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people who read about this vision for our children, our forests, our world.

GSF RECOMMENDS THAT THE STATE AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENTS:

Accept the principle that management of public native state forests in south eastern NSW changes from timber extraction to climate mitigation and adaptation, and carbon sequestration

Cease native forest logging and woodchipping in state forests in this region

Prioritise forest preservation and restoration in the 432,575ha of SE State forests, and

That the NSW Government commence negotiations to secure carbon credits for native forest carbon sequestration from the Australian Commonwealth government’s Emission Reductions Fund with the proviso that any applicable carbon credit revenue be directed to retraining, jobs and infrastructure in regional forest restoration and nature-based tourism, and not to any further logging.
