The image below is of the cathedral of trees which were scheduled for logging. ABC News report 22.06.2011 confirms that ForestsNSW has committed to exclude 'the cathedral of trees' from logging. BJS

The image below shows part of the area to be logged, on the east side of the Wallaga Lake Road near Lot 1613. This area does not contain 200 year old, old growth trees. Only meter wide stumps are seen in the area of older growth trees. The trees are quite young and need to be left alone to devlop the beneficial qualities of old growth trees. The canopy is already sparse and further canopy destruction by logging will be detrimental to topsoil development and growing conditions. BJS
