Description

We believe in the intrinsic value of all species and landscapes present on the Earth and therefore wish to adopt systems of production that fulfil basic human needs with minimal impact on the natural environment.

We are committed to the promotion and protection of native forests and timber production methods that rehabilitate degraded lands.

We are trying to protect high conservation value forests and promote the shift to an ecologically viable wood products industry in Australia.

Our aim is to preserve and educate all the values of native forests in a way that ensures the continued healthy functioning of all of the processes of native forest ecosystems.
