Peter Walsh MP:
Cleared Timber Must Not Go to Waste
Cleared timber from roadsides should be utilised.
By Portal Admin - 4th February 2020 - Back to News
Timber contractors have spent weeks clearing dangerous timber from roadsides to ensure the safety of Victorians returning to their communities after catastrophic bushfires in East Gippsland and north east Victoria.
This includes many tonnes of sawlog grade timber that will go to waste if the Andrews Government doesn’t act to utilise it.
I’ve written to Agriculture Minister Jaclyn Symes to urgently expedite the required decision-making to ensure our timber industry can harvest and process this valuable resource.
It is time for Daniel Andrews to put his political games with our timber industry aside.
We must take every opportunity to support communities to recover.
Allowing access to this resource will support timber businesses and sustain jobs at a time when the industry needs it most.
